Head straight to the Yachting World stand in ExCel's main entrance hall to find one of the brightest and most exciting new features at the Boat Show

Visitors to the London Boat Show at ExCeL (6-15 January) should head straight to the Yachting World stand in the main entrance by the DLR station to find one of the brightest and most exciting new features at the Show. This year we have teamed up with the other IPC Marine Media magazines, including Yachting Monthly, Practical Boat Owner and Classic Boat, to create one big sailing magazine store (stand B101). Visitors will have the chance to purchase the latest issue, take advantage of our special subscriptions offers, see some spectacular sailing films on our giant plasma screen, listen to one of our many special presentations, and meet the editorial team.

Talks at the show
We’ll have a number of new features. One of these will be a series of talks held on the stand. Each talk lasts for 30 minutes. Attendance is free.

Running list

Saturday 7 January, Wednesday 12 and Saturday 14 January (1500)Andrew Bishop of World Cruising Club Limited, organisers of the ARC, will be talking about ‘Sailing an Atlantic Circuit’

Another good reason to visit the stand is to meet the Editorial Team.
