Good to see that in a year when so many sailors have been attending world renowned well publicised events, a lifestyle guru gets to open the show. And a TV pirate gets a mention. Had thought about going, but not much point, really.

I hope she doesn't bring her ex husband with her.... understandably he doesn't like things with ropes.

Hi Grf
Having been to Downs SC and up the M20 on the way back I am not surprised you don't like travelling, what an awful bit of road. Surface is so bad I was really worried about losing a wheel or punctures.
Southampton boat show is something I go to about every 3 or 4 years fine for a meet up but not much for dinghy sailors.

Precious little for us to see there, RS usually have a stand, so have Hartleys in the past, I don't suppose they'll be debuting the new Contender quite yet have they even started the build? Was it last year there was a lipsticked Osprey, I can't remember the mists of time and speeding tickets received down there have curtailed any desire I have to revisit.
