The Whyte & Mackay Boat Show announce new dates for this year's event 18/4/08

The second Whyte & Mackay Earls Court Boat Show will run for just five days – half the length of last year’s event – and has been brought forward by a week from the originally announced dates. The new dates are 26-30 November 2008.

“We want to condense it and make it more buzzy,” the show’s Managing Director James Brooke told Classic Boat Magazine. The earlier date, “at the request of some international exhibitors”, is to avoid a clash with the Paris Boat Show.

The show will once again have a classic element, said James, with a focus on classic powerboat racing, and plans for a classic boat auction.
