Set Sail for the London Boat Show: Coming to Canary Wharf This January
Ideally situated on the bank of the iconic River Thames, less than a mile from many of London’s prestigious marinas, Smart City luxury apartments in Canary Wharf offer guests a unique opportunity to take in the sight of majestic watercraft berthed among the city waters.
It’s a view the more adventurous, seafaring members of our team have come to really admire since we first moved in a year ago, so you can likely understand the excitement we felt when we heard that the annual London Boat Show was returning to the Docklands in just a few days time.
Cast Off for an Action Packed Programme
Set to take place at the London ExCel arena the prestigious event is the first opportunity boating enthusiasts will have to get a look at 2017′s must-have marine trends, as well as gaining insider advice from top experts and celebrities.
This year, the highly popular show runs from Friday, January 6th to Sunday, January 15th, bringing with it a packed programme of events, entertainment, and of course, a look at some of the world’s most glamorous luxury yachts.
For us, it’s the latter that serves as a personal favourite; a chance to glance behind the scenes at the exquisite designs, advanced, state-of-the-art features, and elegant craftsmanship of these truly remarkable crafts.
That said, the boats themselves are only one part of the 2017 London Boat Show. For many visitors, the real highlight is the rare opportunity to shake hands with a number of inspiring sporting heroes.
Meet Olympic Medalists and Record Breaking Athletes at the London ExCel Arena
With Sky Sports sailing presenter Alec Wilkinson hosting proceedings, some of the boating world’s biggest names will be answering questions and talking about their incredible adventures on the London Stage.
One of the many well-known names appearing this year i Dame Ellen MacArthur, who will be recalling tales from her solo round-the-world voyages at one of the boat show’s most anticipated events.
Another unmissable presentation will see Wilkinson talking to Helena Lucas, the history-making Paralympian who won Britain’s first Paralympic gold medalist in sailing, and the first ever female winner of a predominantly male-orientated class.
