London on Water gets wet
Over the weekend there was a boat show called London on Water in St. Katharine Docks. I'd been to the one last year and been slightly underwhelmed, apart from some rather nice cars, though it had been a nice sunny day.
Alas the one this year was rather bucketing down though there was a bit more to see:
There was a floating pontoon area with stands, a bar (which of course Buff went straight to), an area for talks and more boats including one of those long distance offshore rowing boats (above) which I can never quite see why people sign up for.
Technically it was ticketed but in practice there was no one checking at the door onto the pontoon (and anyhow I had a guest ticket aka reason to get my email).
But I went to two interesting talks and met another of those sailing round the world making videos couples which will post about next.
With the cancellation of the London Boat Show 2019, if there is another London On Water next year it could end up being London's only boat show.
