Cruising is done primarily by couples. Two Can Sail, Sea-Tech Systems, Blue Water Sailing, Winslow Life Raft, and Weems & Plath, are sponsoring this seminar to help couples learn how to take the drama out of their dream, from choosing the right boat to sailing away together in harmony. The seminar is hosted by couples instructors and lifelong cruisers and Captains Jean Levine and Jeff Grossman.
Team Jeff & Jean specialize in working with couples and bring this focus to their Two Can Sail Couples Cruising Seminars. These seminars are a forum to share the knowledge they have gained in the unique aspects that are found with one couple on a cruising boat, and their experience from over 60 combined years of cruising and teaching sailing. Guest Speakers include Liza Copeland and Lee Chesneau.

Not Ready for the Water? Come Sail Away on the Sailing Simulator and take a free sailing lesson.
Get a feel for the water without leaving the show on a virtual sailboat ride. A certified ASA small boat instructor will be on hand to offer you a free sailing lesson and the chance to experience how a boat reacts to the wind and waves right at the show.
Designed and built by a nuclear physicist, the sailing simulator recreates the actual movement of a boat under sail. It’s a unique training platform for sailors of all abilities—whether you’re a new boater who wants to learn how to sail or an experienced sailor who wants to practice under different sailing conditions. Stop by and see for yourself how it really feels to sail without leaving dry land.
