I went - it was a big disappointment. I didn't expect a large amount of sailboats but did expect more than the 10 to 12 that were there. The other disappointment was all the boats with the exception of a few trailer-able fishing boats were USED. The only interesting thing (besides the bars) was meeting and talking with the owner of Ruling Angel, an 80 ft slope they have been sailing around the world for the last 6 years. It's now for sale for 1.8 million dollars. I don't think I will buying it anytime soon. I heard from others there that it was a much better show last year.
