If the sights of all this glittering water and billowing sails gives you a hankering for your own vessel, then head to the The Western Boat Show at Hannover Quay on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (by Cafe Gusto).
The show, which runs across all three days of the Harbour Festival weekend, will display a range of new and used boats for offshore and inland use to suit every budget – anything from collapsible dinghies, inflatables, canal boats, sailing boats, speed boats to large motor boats – not forgetting all the boating equipment, from engines, clothing, marinas, holidays, sails to deck shoes for boating enthusiasts.
The Show also covers all sorts of ways of getting on the water with canoes, paddle boards and other watersports equipment on display.
The land-based show is free to all festival visitors and visitors can register (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/western-boat-show-2018-tickets-37682915615) for free tickets to gain exclusive access to the boats displayed on the pontoons.
