Was there meself today and agree with most recent comments - I had a great time, really good relaxed atmosphere, and plenty of time to talk to exhibitors

I went on Thursday night and thought it was a good show, as Nasher said mainly caus it was so quiet.

I think the best bit for me were the massage girls by the Big Screen

No but we did get some odd looks from the Guinness Stand crew when I mixed a shot of black currant juice into a pint of the black stuff, Nasher looked suprised

Went there today too.

Was quiet and didnt seem like a Saturday at a boat show. Had a good mix of water sport companies from Windsurfing to Yachting, Ribs to Wakeboard stuff.

It wasn't over subscribed with clothing places, and was chilled.

Its a shame about the top floor, with half covered in pictures/paintings and the other left to the charities/museums was a little disapointing there was nothing else keeping you busy.

Must admit, the Cat walk show/dancing in wetsuits was rather amusing!

Must say thanks to Doug, sorry I didnt personally say hello, but I did introduce myself to your collegue.

Good show but would be better with more dinghy and rib companies.
