Search for your sea-legs, check out a coracle and learn the difference between a Cat's Paw and a Lark's head at the International Wooden Boat Show. Canoes, skiffs, yachts and other watery craft from all over Europe will be shown outside the National Maritime Museum in London, alongside sailmakers and knot-tyers demonstrating their nautical skills for sailors and curious land-lubbers. The highlight of the show is an al fresco re- enactment of the Battle of Trafalgar using a giant stage to represent HMS Victory, Lord Nelson's flagship. The admiral's bloodstained uniform can be seen on display inside the National Maritime Museum.
