US SAILING is ready to hit the road this summer on our Road Show. The Road Show will be making stops at sailing venues from Maine to Virginia. We'll be participating at regattas, junior clinics, community outreach programs, adult learn to sail seminars and other exciting sailing events. Fans can follow us on our journey as we track our every move. Follow our blog and check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
