We take to the water at the PSP Southampton Boat Show

The Event Broadcast team is now happily settled in the Press Office at the PSP Southampton Boat Show.

As always it was a hectic first day with a vast number of press launches  – all of our reporters emerged unscathed and without succumbing (too much!) to the offers of champagne!

The marine industry throws up some great gadgets, not least the new thermal imaging cameras from Raymarine. A few years ago these cameras were only available as military hardware and cost around half a million. Now an average boater can install one on their yacht.

We were delighted to produce and present the launch.  Our presenter, Tracey Clarke tried her hardest to get a free sample but no luck yet.
