A purpose-built 2,100 sq m pool at the event, which runs from 8-18 January, will include fans that can simulate a 30-knot wind. The area will showcase sailing demonstrations, races and coaching sessions as well as host the UK National Indoor Windsurfing Championships. Seating for 1,700 people will be provided.
Show organiser National Boat Shows has also devised an Inland Waterways feature showcasing accessories, boats and holidays focused around canals, lakes, rivers and the broads. It will focus on waterways restoration and environmental issues.
