London International Boat Show

A lot of people say it's not like it used to be, but then most boat shows have suffered because of online shopping - you can't get the bargains there like you could before!

Here is a short video I took on the opening day. I hope you enjoy!

Nice, thanks for sharing. More of a motor boat show these days isn't it?

hi Paulo,

I'm glad you liked it! You are right, there are certainly more powerboats than sail boats... It was great to see the old Riva though.

Re: London International Boat Show

Thanks for sharing the vid. Great to see what is happening over there. Same here, Sydney boat show is now powerboat/fishing focused with only a minor sailing presence.

Re: London International Boat Show

It seems that only on the Paris and Dusseldodf boat shows we have a more than symbolic sailboat presence

Really??

Maybe I need to convince the wife that a trip to Paris is in order.
