Great start at Southampton Boat Show with Matt Baker and Iain Percy
Inspired by double Olympic medallist Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation helps young people to develop the personal skills that will improve their ability to succeed in life and to improve access to jobs and careers within the maritime sector.
This year’s visitors to the PSP Southampton Boat Show will be treated to exciting attractions, the chance to try everything from sailing to wooden boat building to climbing, and access to a host of world-class boats. Whether it's going out on an exhilarating Suzuki RIB Experience ride, having a go in the Challenge 72, or climbing aboard the historic tall ship Phoenix, there is something for everyone, children and adults alike, to have a go at. The show takes place against a stunning backdrop of the marina.
The Boat Show Eye – a 100 ft ferris wheel – is expected to be a big hit and debut boats always draw the crowds.
Matt Baker, TV Presenter said, "I am very passionate about the great outdoors and looking for adventure, so I'm very excited to be part of the PSP Southampton Boat Show this year. I have always wanted to visit the Show and as a sailing novice it's the perfect opportunity to get some more experience out on the water. I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful attractions at the Show."
Tickets to the PSP Southampton Boat Show start from £15 per adult with concessions available for over-60s, disabled visitors and groups of 10 people or more. Two children under the age of 15 go free with each paying adult.
