The organisers of the new Earls Court boat show hint at what's in store

The organisers of the Whyte & Mackay Earls Court Boat Show say that their show will “embrace the culture of the past and the innovation of the future”, including hands-on activities for kids.

The Earls Court Boat Show will feature “secure activities for children of all ages”. Another unique feature will be the recognition of maritime leaders of the past and present. Each day will culminate with headline entertainment.

“Whyte & Mackay’s Earls Court Boat Show will provide a cultural environment that rekindles the love of the sea, furthers the sense of alignment with and interest in all levels of boating, from rowboats to powerboats to super yachts,” said John Vincent, co-founder of the show.

The organisers’ statement is low on specifics, but they promise more details “over the next few months”.
