157 members of Congress and/or staff —104 on the House side—61 of whom are freshmen—and 53 on the Senate side— met this year to discuss maritime issues at the Annual Maritime Industry Congressional Sail-In.

The event took place on May 8, 2013. Then, the day was capped off with a reception in an elegant, spacious hearing room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
