Indoor pool to star at debut Excel boat fair

The 2004 Schroders London International Boat Show at Excel is to feature an indoor water sports area.

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.
