ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The 47th annual United States Sailboat Show is on schedule to begin in Annapolis.

The show is set to start Thursday.

While Hurricane Matthew created concerns about potentially interfering with the show, organizers say they’re set to open the show on schedule. It’s the second consecutive year that weather threatened to be a disruption.

More than 200 boats are in the water at Annapolis City Dock and Harbor and hundreds of on-land exhibitors were moving in Wednesday.

Organizers say Thursday’s opening will be the largest. It runs through Monday.
