Three mistakes here. The first is: the Boat Show isn't all about sailing. It is mostly about selling large stinkboats. Second mistake is: most of the people who might be able to afford the stinkboats in question work in the City. They are not evenly spread around the country. Third mistake, even if we are talking sailing, the kind of sailing that is relevant is primarily large yachts, which are mostly based either in the Solent or abroad.

So yes, the NEC is nearer the middle of the country but no, it isn't in the middle of the customers the Boat Show is looking for.

 

 

 

still. would be nice if it were more evenly spread for us mear mortals,

 

let them have the boat show. Bring the dinghy show up north

Why not move it to the NEC, very large, easy access for all.

From the little child having it's first paddle in the sea, to the elderly couple reading papers on the promenade,

From the salty sea to the inland waters

Power, sail. oars, whatever....

please, a little more tolerance could, and should be shown to all those who strive to be on, in, under, or beside the water

we all here enjoy our hobbies....be  gracious and let all share the joy of the water, whatever their choice of craft.

Dear Mr Headfry,

When you talk of those enjoying their sport beside the water do you include those chaps with catapaults and maggotts. Whose sport seems to be to fill my boat with stinking morsels of dog biscuit and something called "boilies"
