Sports Listings: Plan Ahead: London International Boat Show
Friday 17 December 1993
This year's central feature is 'Sail Scotland' and the Olympic- sized pool will be transformed into the West Coast of Scotland from the Firth of Clyde to Argyll and the Islands with its working ferry. For the second year the Boating Information Stand will incorporate 'Start Boating', a service to encourage newcomers to sailing and watersports, and the expert advice is free.
Among the attractions the Royal National Lifeboat Institution will demonstrate its inshore rescue boat; there will be daily talks on a variety of boating topics and giant video screens will relay pictures from the third leg of the Whitbread Round the World Race.
The London Show is one the largest boat shows in the world. More than 600 exhibitors will show 800 craft and windsurfers. The latest electronic equipment, chandlery, holidays afloat, traditional wooden boatbuilding and crafts from our marine heritage are just part of the comprehensive display.
The show will also have two late evening openings, on Thursdays 6 and 13 January, to allow vistors time to view after work. Advance ticket prices at the reduced rate of pounds 6.95 per adult are available up to 20 December.
