The first Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show on Richmond’s shoreline was called a “great success” by the Richmond Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The so-called largest sailboat show on the West Coast, which occurred from Thursday through Sunday, is poised to return again next year to the Marina Bay Yacht Harbor and Craneway Pavilion, according to a Sunday post on the show’s Facebook page. The boat show is reportedly set to be located in Richmond for five consecutive years.
Despite rainy weather for the first show, the views were hard to beat and the Richmond space offered more room than the show’s previous location at Jack London Square Marina in Oakland, Richmond officials said.
The show featured more than 100 boats and more than 200 related exhibits.
Beth Javens, executive director of the Richmond Convention and Visitors Bureau, said another great benefit of the show was that it shined a spotlight on Richmond’s historic waterfront.
“Leadership and participants of this special event were excited to be on the extraordinary Richmond shoreline which provided access to great views, more space for inside equipment displays and seminars and outside boat displays, including the Richmond based floating classroom, the Derek M. Baylis (a boat serving educational purposes for youth),” Javens said in a statement.
