Sail-World.com : Sydney International Boat Show - Boating Stage

Sydney International Boat Show - Boating Stage


Each year the Sydney International Boat Show Sailing and Boating Stage hosts larger than life personalities, passionate about marine sports and the boating lifestyle. These presentations are enthusiastically received by equally keen audiences, who gather at the venue for shows between 10.30am and 7.30pm.

     

This year, crowds can expect a diverse repertoire. At 10am, there will be adrenaline- pumping vision from the Australian F1 Superboat circuit, then onstage action kicks off at 10.30am with Shane Earl from Ski Racing Australia presenting Water Ski excitement with World Champions in action.

At 11am, audiences will hear from first-hand proponents about ‘Offshore Power Boat Racing’, presented by Australian Power boating Champions Tom Barry-Cotter and Ross Willaton. They show a heart-stopping medley of video footage of races and all the spills at international events, where boats compete at speeds up to 270 km per hour.

100 years ago Ole Evinrude rowed across his heavy wooden dinghy across a windy lake and decided he needed to strap an engine on the back. Flash forward to 11:30am each day of the boat show , where Duncan Knight and the BRP team fill us in on the fascinating history of the outboard engine and what’s in store in the future for marine engines.

At 12 noon each day, you will discover why ‘You don’t have to be a hero to go Powerboat Cruising’. Stephen Milne from Riviera explains that modern cruising boats make offshore cruising safer and easier. He recounts the adventures and activities of wandering cruiser owners who have set their sights on and completed long distance trips.

At 12.30pm, the gals and guys from Team Musto will be modeling the latest marine technical gear and casual wear.

Then at 1pm each day, Phil Pitt from Pacific Boating will explain how you can get out on the water with family and friends even before you’ve saved for that luxury cruiser.

At 1.30pm, marine safety will be the theme as the team from NSW Maritime, along with Coastal Patrol & Coastguard explain how their safety net and some important tips can keep you out of trouble in NSW waters.

At 2pm each day (except Friday), two young Australian adventures who headlined around the world will be on stage. Last year Justin Jones, 24 and James Castrission, 25, spent 62 days at sea, enduring 10m seas, howling gale-force winds and food and sleep deprivation to achieve their aim of ‘crossing the ditch’.

Their dramatic journey, from Forster on the mid-NSW north coast to New Plymouth, New Zealand, is not only the first kayak expedition to cross the Tasman Sea, but has gone into the history books as the longest trans-oceanic kayak journey ever undertaken by two adventurers. Audiences will be riveted to hear first-hand accounts of their trevails.

Then, Team Musto is back on stage from 2.30pm. It’s amazing just how the crowd becomes fascinated by technical clothing when it’s being modeled by the great girls from Musto!

At 3pm, from Thursday until Sunday, the 2008 Tasmanian of the Year, Ken Gourlay, who set a new record when he sailed solo non-stop round the World in 2007, will tell of his epic journey.

At 3.30pm each day, the very popular Gary Schipper from Stormy Seas will present his Marine Safety presentation. Charismatic and concise, Gary always draws a crowd at the Sydney Boat Show. Stop by and you will see why.

At 4pm each day, Sail-World’s Cruising Editor Nancy Knudsen, who devoted four years to cruising around the world, will talk about the sights, sounds and savouring the experiences from that wonderful journey, comparing cultures as she explored the world’s waterways.

At 4.30pm, the sailing action speeds up, just a week ahead of the Olympic sailing regatta in China,where Australia’s team is eager for a good medal haul. British Olympian, Laura Baldwin will be joined on stage by Australian and World champion sailors who will preview the Olympic action.

At 5pm each day, Australian sailor Tony Mowbray will transport you to another world. If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting Antarctica or the Southern Ocean in a yacht, this is the presentation for you. There’s some beautiful video footage of Antarctica complete with the eerie sound of shards of ice fragmenting around his boat.

The 5.30pm slot, every day except Friday when they are on at 7:30pm, will feature the two young Australian kayakers, James Castrission and Justin James, back on stage with the Kayak they paddled from Australia to New Zealand.

If you’ve been thinking about taking a boating holiday, but haven’t had time to plan one, come along to listen to Trevor Joyce from mariner Boating who will be presenting ‘Boating Holidays for sailors and power boaters’ at 6pm each day.

Then at 6.30pm, Team Musto returns, modeling the latest in technical and fashion wear again.

Each night at 7pm, the finale belongs to Jeff Jauncey, the principal of the NSW Boating College who will inform and entertain with details of boating licence exams, training and safety courses that will equip people at all levels to become better, safer boaters.

Then, wrapping up the action for the day, and leaving us all in the boating frame of mind as the show closes, watch the wonderful marine vision from Boat Books Australia.
