I'll be out on the Friday on a cruiser for a corporate day and then again on Saturday for a family day. Sunday i'm going to stay on the beach, the crowd looked immense last year and I've not seen the show from land yet. Hope we get good weather.

It is a great event, top tip if you dont want to look a nob like many people who drag there anchors or dont have enouth rope/chain to anchor then make sure you have a decent length of anchor rope and chain as the exclusion zone is rather far out and hence you need adequet rope/chain.

The centre line for the display is rougthly half way between piers and lines up with a big red banner which is put on the cliff for the pilots to see.

If you have small kids then ear plus maybe a good idea as the fast loud jets really do roar overhead very close if your in a boat.
