PSP Southampton Boat Show 2012 is being held from Friday 14th to Sunday 23rd September. From launches and workshops, to racing and special offers, the RYA is hosting a plethora of events and activities.

New for 2012 is the RYA 'Active Marina Experience' in partnership with Which Marina? Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to refresh their boating skills and gain top tips from expert instructors with free on the water and shore based workshops.

From man overboard drills and berthing manoeuvres to engine maintenance and radar operation, workshops will run each day and will provide some real hands-on experience.

Places are very limited so it is highly recommended you book your session either in advance for the shore-based workshops or on the day for on-the-water sessions.

To book an on-water workshop visit the ‘Try-a-Boat’ booking point on stand A140, when you arrive at the show (On-water workshops cannot be booked in advance).

Shorebased workshops can be booked in advance through Which Marina? by emailing Bookings(@)which-marina.com, calling 01784 223 816 or by visiting the Which Marina? stand F004 at the show. The first 50 shorebased workshop bookings will receive a free Navionics app for iPhones worth £21.99.
