The London Boat ShowAhoy there! London's biggest exhibition of boats and water crafts of all kinds returns - featuring 500 exhibitors showcasing anything from 1.4-metre sailing dinghies to 37-metre tri-deck motor yachts. Visitors can also take part in a range of thrilling watersport activities such as kayaking, windsurfing and wakeboarding in a special Action Pool. With displays ranging from indoor canoeing to sailing, tall ships, historic vessels and a marina full of some the largest exhibitor boats in production (at the Royal Victoria Dock), it's set to be an action-packed event with all hands on deck. Additional activities include an anchor watch masterclass, boating for beginners area - free from people peddling products - new boat launches and the Dinghy Racing Weekend. A must-see for anyone who likes messing about on the water.
