About the Secrets of the ICW Seminar: 

Traveling the ICW from the mid-Atlantic to Florida and beyond is a rite of passage for many sailors. The journey can take anywhere for 6 to 12 weeks and there's much to consider along the way: Where do I stop? How do I provision? How much should I budget? What kind of navigational tricks do I need to be aware of? Once again, SAIL is bringing together the best in ICW experts to answer your questions in a one-day seminar at the Westin Annapolis on the Sunday of the Annapolis boat show. Hope to see you there! For more on the Seminar, click here.
