4th Jersey Boat Show opens today

The Barclays Wealth Jersey Boat Show opens today in and around St Helier marina.

It’s good to be back in Jersey, this time leading a band of journalists to sample the delights of the Show.

The Royal Navy are here in the shape of HMS Severn, complete with a lady commanding officer. I’m planning to track her down for an interview later. Sharing a very small bathroom with all those chaps – hmm.

There’s a new Get Active Zone so I also plan to do just that – there is a rumour of a media paddle boarding competition. Happily I think I am just MC’ing from the Quay.

Tonight there is the showing of the silent movie “Around Cape Horn” to the sound of a solo cellist – should be interesting.

More on the Show to come…
