If you're planning to go to the Sydney International Boat Show, (28 Aug to 01 Sep) at Darling Harbour, make sure you don't miss the fun, entertainment and information that will be yours on stage at the Better Boating Lounge! While the non-stop show lasts from 11.30am daily, for sailors there are some special highlights. So grab a coffee, find a seat, relax and be entertained at the following times:

NSW Maritime - what you need to know about sailing and motoring safely -  .. .  

12.00noon every day: NSW Maritime, 'Boating Safety':


If you are sailing within New South Wales, this is a very informative session about the ins and outs of how NSW Maritime seeks to keep our coastal and inland waters safe.

It applies to powerboats as well as sailing boats, so hear what they have to say and ask your toughest questions.








Ted Nobbs and Nancy Knudsen -  .. .   Click Here to view large photo
2.00pm every day: Nancy Knudsen, 'Preparing a cruising yacht for a longer journey':
Nancy Knudsen, cruising editor of Sail-World, and her husband Ted Nobbs left their familiar world of competitive sailing behind when they embarked on a cruising circumnavigation.

Learn from Ted and Nancy on stage what it's like to survive in the tiny confines of a boat together for six years, and the most important things they discovered in their steep learning curve to become cruising sailors. I got a clue about how they survived when I spoke to them last week.
'We thought we knew it all,' said Ted, who has a string of Hobarts, a Fastnet, an Admiral's Cup and a Horn rounding to his credit.
'No,' smiled Nancy quick as a flash, 'YOU thought you knew it all - then you tried to teach me.'
'Turns out neither of us knew much, but we finally did learn a little,' grinned Ted.
While divulging some of the humour and cockpit disputes of their extended journey in Nancy's just published book Shooting Stars and Flying Fish, they also will give out their most important tips in getting ready for a longer cruising voyage.

Musto Fashion Extravaganza -  .. .  

2.30pm every day: Musto Fashion Extravaganza, 'Have you danced with Musto?':

See the latest in what the well-dressed yachtie is wearing!

Prepare to be dazzled with dancing, music and lights as you see the latest in recreational boating, social and competitive sailing apparel and accessories.

This year visitors will see a special performance project managed by the students of ICMS.

Take the weight off your feet with a cup of coffee, grab a seat and relax to watch the show!








Ian Thomson -  .. .  

3.30pm every day: Ian Thomson, 'Save our Seas':

In 2010, Ian Thomson, set a new world record for the fastest solo circumnavigation of Australia when he took, amazingly, more than 26 days off the standing record.

You can hear from Ian personally what it's like to circumnavigate Australia solo, the challenges, the difficulties, the high points and the low, and ask questions.

Ian was also the founder of Save Our Seas in 2010 to raise awareness of the damage to our environment through the use of plastics and plastic bags.




Lynda and Bill Frylink Anderson -  .. .  
4.00pm Friday to Sunday: Linda Frylink, 'Built in the backyard, sailed around the world':

Linda will talk about her voyage of 30,000 nautical miles that began with a single step, and with building their boat from scratch in their back-yard.

A single dream of two people - a 30-year dream to sail around the world. Linda has also just released her first book titled ‘Sailing In My Sarong’ which is an honest account of their two-year circumnavigation visiting 30 countries.


Working on a Superyacht - is it for you? Hear the facts! -  .. .  
6.30pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday: Donna Morris, 'Working on Superyachts around the world': This will be an excellent session for those who wonder whether they should take the plunge and go sailing professionally in the world of the superyacht.

Now why not print out this article to plan your visit to the show, to be held at the Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. The Better Boating Lounge can be found in Hall 2.
