I had a great day there on Saturday. Came away lightly this time - only spent money on some proper waterproof jackets and got a free upgrade from Garmin.

I did take a tour of one of the massive Sunseekers, early on before the crowds got in. Just to see what Id spend my multiple lottery winnings on

A free upgrade? Who, where, HOW??!!

I'd only be looking for a jacket and trousers (been waiting for the Gill OS2 to come down in price) - were there any real bargains, or were the prices pretty much what you can get them online for?

I had some technical questions I took to the Garmin stand and after quizzing a few of them they got the boffin over to help. In the end he just gave me a memory card which i stuck in the card slot and it updated it.

I think they would give one to you, just ask. Or you could borrow mine. Ive got a 750S.

Clothing wise check out the Hudson Wight stand, (Sailing and Foul Weather Clothing :: Hudson Wight Performance Sailwear) just over the first bridge and on the left hand side. Locally made and really good quality. The owner has a RIB and spends ages in the Solent on it. So he was a good person to chat to.

I've got Raymarine plotter so I wouldn't have any use for the Garmin upgrade - I thought you meant an upgrade to equipment, not the software, and anything for FREE STUFF!! lol.

Thanks for the link - will have a look.

Myself and a friend went Tuesday as well, the traffic jams from Bicester through juntion 9 of the M40 to the start of the Abingdon by-pass horrendus, three hours to get to Abingdon. Boat show a nice walk in the sunshine, see a few people from my working days spoke (took the pee really) to them , I looked at some very nice R.B.S. with all differant makes of OBM.
