Racine Hosts ACBS Boat Show


This year, it’s the Belle City on the Lake’s turn to host the annual Antique & Classic Boat Society’s (ACBS) International Meeting and Boat Show. This year’s show, which will be held from September 6 to 9 in Racine, Wisconsin, will be hosted at the 921-slip ReefPoint Marina. Sponsors for the show are Real Racine (Racine County’s destination marketing organization), the City of Racine and Racine County.

Organizers expect that boaters will have the opportunity to admire 150 to 200 restored vintage wooden and fiberglass boats from the 1920s through the 1960s. Participating boats usually include models from Chris-Craft, Century, Hacker Craft, Gar Wood, Thompson and more. Show attendees will also be mere steps away from downtown Racine, which features unique shops, galleries, restaurants and access to paved trails along the lakeshore.
