Canal Boat - - News -

CANAL BOATS are go­ing back on show in Lon­don this year thanks to the Lon­don On-Water yacht­ing and boat­ing fes­ti­val.

Held in St Katharine Docks, cen­tral Lon­don’s only ma­rina, and a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge and The Tower of Lon­don, the show is plan­ning a Canal Boat World fea­ture for the first time.

Lon­don On-Water, now in its third year, will be held over 8-11 June and will show­case ev­ery­thing from RIBs to lux­ury yachts and ev­ery­thing in be­tween with each ves­sel avail­able to visit and ex­plore on-board, plus there will be a su­per­car show­case and mariner’s vil­lage.

In ad­di­tion to Canal Boat World, new fea­tures this year in­clude a ‘Mariner’s Re­tail Vil­lage’ on Mar­ble Quay, live screen­ing of the Amer­ica’s Cup, the op­por­tu­nity to take a boat for a spin and a chance to see Ben Fogle, the well-known TV per­son­al­ity and ex­plorer and power­boat rac­ing vet­eran Tom Mont­gomery-Swan on their Spec­tre 32R on which they plan to chal­lenge the world record for the fastest cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion of the Bri­tish Isles in a boat.

While some of the show is free, ac­cess to the ma­rina and pon­toons costs £5 but Canal Boat read­ers can get in for free by go­ing to lon­donon­wa­ter.com/sgi and en­ter­ing the sgi code CANAL.
