Southampton Boat Show 2011


 The Cruising Association will be joining hundreds of exhibitors at the 2011 Southampton Boat show from the 16th- 25th September.

We are eagerly anticipating an involvement with the UK’s leading outdoor boat show, which will once again be showcasing everything the boating world has to offer both on and off the water.

Last year’s show was a great success with the recruitment of around 100 new members, and we are looking forward to greeting members old and new this year at stand JO59.

This year we will be launching the annual version of our very successful Cruising Almanac. The Almanac, which is produced and edited by Cruising Association members who cruise the areas themselves, covers the area from the Shetland Islands to Gibraltar, and from West Ireland to Southwest Baltic with tide tables for 47 standard ports.

Information regarding our exciting new North France & Channel Islands Section will also be available.

Finally, look out for qualified Yacht Master instructor Ray Kay, who will be delivering an informative lecture on behalf of the Cruising Association on the last Friday of the show (23rd September). The lecture will take place at 3pm at the Boat Clinic, which can be found in the Solent Hall.


The Show is located at Mayflower Park/Town Quay, Southampton SO15 1AG. Travel information can be found here.


The show will be open from 10am until 6.30pm every day, finishing at 6pm on the final day.
