Well we have made it so far to the halfway point of the Boat show. The visitors figures are down on the last show, which was to be expected with todays economic climate. We have met some very nice people so far and we have had an excellent response to out Yachtmaster modular programme.
If your coming don’t forget to stop by and say hello. There are some good bargains to be had in the chandlery department and after tomorrow the Outdoor leisure and bike show starts so three shows for the price of one.
after a six and a half hour drive dodging tree parts and trees we got to ExCel. The stand is set up and looks very smart with our Gibralter partners Hercules Sailings graphics up as well.
A bit of dinner and bed I think is the order of the day. Blog soon.
Well that crept up quickly! Steve and I will be leaving tomorrow morning for ExCel London to set up our stand at the Tullet Prebon Boat show. If you are coming don’t forget to stop by and say hello.
We are keeping our 2011 prices until the end of February so if you were thinking of doing that course in 2012 why not book before the end of Feb and save some money.
Look forward to seeing you at the show. Have a safe journey.
