Meals will be served directly outside of the ACTIVE Expo doors in the Marina hallway. Lunch is provided on Tuesday and Wednesday. A light, grab-and-go breakfast will be served on a first-come, first-served basis Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Snacks will be provided each afternoon. Dinners are not provided with the exception of the Tuesday evening social where heavy appetizers and cocktails will be served (see Nautical Nights Social).
