Still wondering whether to go? Guy Swindells, Matt Sheahan and Toby Hodges make a good case for visiting a show that has re-invented itself

The buzz is back. Following several years of concern and criticism over the layout and style of the London Boat Show at Excel in London’s Docklands, this year’s revamped, re-worked and revitalised show is well worth a visit.

From fixed wings, grand prix racers and dinghies to globe trotting blue water cruisers, kayaks, wake boards and more, there’s plenty to see. Guy Swidells, Matt Sheahan and Toby Hodges report on what caught their eyes on the opening weekend.

Plus, Guy catches up with Ben Ainslie.
