Get a feel for the water without leaving the show on a virtual sailboat ride. A certified 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 without leaving dry land. (weight restrictions apply)

Designed and built by a nuclear physicist, the sailing simulator re-creates 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 a small boat or an experienced small boat sailor who wants to practice under different sailing conditions. Stop by the show and see for yourself how it really feels to sail without leaving dry land. Click Here to view the simulator in action.
