A lucky sailor will win a Beneteau First 22 at the United States Sailboat Show, October 8 – 12, 2015, the Annapolis Boat Shows recently announced.
“This is our grandest prize yet and will add to the excitement of the 2015 United States Sailboat Show,” said Paul Jacobs, general manager and president of the Annapolis Boat Shows.
“An astonishing array of activities are slated for this year’s show. In addition to premiering sailboats and the largest collection of multihulls anywhere in the world, there will be sailboat lessons on the First 22 and more than 40 courses for cruisers. Plus the America’s Cup trophy will be on display Thursday and Friday. There is truly something for everyone,” Jacobs added.
Show goers who purchase their tickets online and are eligible to win will be automatically entered. On-site participation will be open during show hours, October 8-12. At the closing of the giveaway period, a random drawing will determine the winner of the grand prize: a Beneteau First 22 with a retail value of $29,900. The grand prize will be displayed on land during the sailboat show.
The First 22 Giveaway is already attracting tremendous interest with a boost in online ticket purchases for the United States Sailboat Show. The First 22 Giveaway is open to any person (excluding citizens of Quebec), 21 years of age or older as of August 27th, 2015. Limited to one entry per person. No purchase necessary to enter.
