Cannes Yachting Festival
Interesting fact about the Cannes Yachting Festival, which drips opulance and is full of gorgeous boats and gorgeous people – I once went there. Decided to soak up the atmosphere first on a beautiful, hot September day and take a lovely cold beer on a beach bar overlooking the harbour and the yachting festival. Heck, it was such an amazing spot, my friend and I took another cold beer. I don’t know if the Cannes Boat Show is any good, but I can tell you that the beach bar nearby was just shaaaamaaaaazing. Hic.

The London Boat Show
World famous for its’ Guiness stand, at which I have stood, and crawled out from, many times over the years. My preference was when it was lodged under the escalators in Earls Court, but now it is lodged in the Excel, London, it isn’t quite so glamorous, but still highly quaffable. Responsible entirely for my purchase of my Foldable Rib, where a couple of pints of the Black stuff confirmed it was a good idea to buy said F Rib. To be fair, it was. It’s a good boat. See my review on the blog if you are interested: F Rib Foldable Rib Review ».
Anyway, London Boat Show you say.
The London Boat Show »
The Big one in London. Not as wet as Southampton and it’s in January, but heck, it’s boats right?
Monaco Yacht Show
Splitting up the feuding London and Southampton Boat Show is the more glamourous setting of the Monaco Yacht Show, or Monaco Boat Show if you are uneducated as I was.
Stunning location, amazing yachts. Sunshine almost guaranteed at the back end of September. My friend James has promised to take me here and provide hosting for the weekend. I await that trip with interest. If he doesn’t get their first Monaco people, I am open to invitations. Private jet me in and I may even give you a header banner spot on totallyboaty for at least a few weeks… Well, what are you waiting for? Yacht me up, before you go-go….
The Southampton Boat Show
Now, having just read about the London Boat Show being in London, you might be expecting the Southampton Boat Show to be in Southampton, mightn’t you eh? Well, erm, you’d be right there. Good job.
It’s like the London Boat Show, just add water, which in my humble opinion does kind of help for boats.
My favourite memory of the Southampton Boat Show – being asked to leave the Sunseeker stand because we had consumed more than the one glass of wine that my complementary invitation had entitled us to. I plead innocence, on account of the fact that I didn’t ask the lovely team Sunseeker to keep topping it up, they just did. Clearer instructions to your hired help required it would seem Sunseeker. Anyway, I digress. Nice boats Sunseeker, and a nice boat show, in Southampton, with an abundance of water (and wine).
