All week I've been getting a steady stream of emails from various yachting companies and sailing schools I've signed up to over the years. Those exhibiting at Earls Court above (*) are joining the push for punters using two-for-one or even free tickets.
They've also got links to various clips of highlights of the boat show over at Sail TV - you can watch by clicking here.
If you want to go and see this for yourself my advice would be to contact any company that's exhibiting and see if there are any of those free tickets left.
(*) As you might notice this photo of Earls Court is not actually during the boat show but that of a small but perfectly formed singer from down under. Unfortunately the ECBS web site's photos are only available in a format that's even smaller than she is!
