'Success in downturn' say organisers

Visitors to the second Sail, Power & Watersports Show did not come up to the 50,000 hoped for, but they were still higher than last year’s show, organisers reveal.

Visitor numbers were up 18% over last year, coming in at 41,300. ‘Buyers are using cash and it’s not “borrowed” money as the banks aren’t lending,’ said the Show’s Managing Director, James Brooke.
