With Easter weekend upon us, we are faced with a very weak boat show calendar. Luckily for the die-hard boat show fanatics, Easter is not celebrated by everybody, so we still have a couple of nautical events to share on this week's boat show round-up...
This Weekend's Boat Shows
Once again, it's a light weekend for boat shows, but you are welcome to jump ahead to the updated, easier-to-read FirstBoat boat show calendar. Here's what's on tap...
- A boat show is just one component of the Rand Show 2012. South Africa’s premier exhibition and the largest consumer launch pad in the country has been going on for more than a century and attracts about a quarter of a million attendees throughout its run. This year's Rand Show runs from April 6th through the 15th.
- Today is the first day of the Hainan Rendez-Vous Boat Show in Sanya, China. Sailing enthusiasts and followers of the Daily Boater will recognize Sanya as the home to China's entry in the Volvo Ocean Race which is currently in its 5th leg (of 9) from Auckland to Itajaí.
A light boat show round-up like this one gives us room to plug one of the local shows we'll be attending. SailQuest, in its 3rd year, has moved to a great new location this year. This spring boat show kicks off the boating season in New England and is being held at Milford Lisman Landing Marina in Milford, Connecticut from May 18 - 20, 2012. Visit the SailQuest site for the latest updates on this show.
There are a few more shows, as well as links to the official websites of all these events and more on the First Boat boat show calendar.
