With the success of British sportsmen and women in sailing, canoeing and rowing during the Olympics and Paralympics, the time could not be better to encourage new people into boating.

The BMF and Boatshed see a great opportunity to inspire young and old to get on the water, by giving them access to people who have "been there and got the t-shirt".

Come and see the team of experts at the PSP Southampton boat show 2012 on the Bus and ask how you can involved in boating. The role of the Bus is very much educational with the emphasis on learning about how to get on the water and inspiring people to get on the water.

People will be able to talk with a range of experts and ambassadors from different water-based activities from Sailing, Paddling to Inland Waterways and Power Boating.

Our boating experts will be available onboard the bus for a couple of hours at different times during the show. A schedule will be available online at and, so visitors can plan their day.

The Bus will be appearing at a range of different venues across the country including the PSP Southampton Boat Show and Tullett Prebon London Boat Shows early next year, as well as a range of local events in the UK.

Come and visit the team at Stand A135 just off the main entrance.

We are looking to create more on the water activities for 2013.
