The 2008 PSP Southampton Boat Show was officially opened on September 12th by the highly successful Olympic sailing team from Great Britain.  Skandia Team GBR members Ben Ainslie, Paul Goodison, Iain Percy, Andrew Simpson, Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson cruised into the Show on board Mike Golding’s ECOVER 3 yacht to launch celebrations for the 40th Show.

The PSP Southampton Boat Show will run until the September 21st in Mayflower Park in Southampton, and is a great place to be to explore all the latest in sailing, boating and watersports.

Skandia Team GBR were joined on the Main Stage by boating and TV legends from the last four decades including Sir Robin Knox Johnston, Kate O’Mara, Lady Pippa Blake, Steve Curtis MBE and Dame Ellen MacArthur.
