The 2023 Show raised over $18,000.00 in funds for Sails Up 4 Cancer. While many boats were sold over the weekend, our shoreside exhibitors broke new ground with over 30 exhibitors engaging the crowds and four bands providing live music.

In 2024, we expect continued growth on both boats and shoreside fun. We have five bands booked for the weekend, three fishing seminars – Fishing The River, Fishing The Sound and Fishing Offshore planned for Saturday. Mark Your Calendar!
