Jessica to appear at the 2010 Sydney International Boat Show 29 July - 2 August

Australian teenager and inspiration to many, seventeen year old Jessica Watson, is

officially confirmed to be a special guest speaker at this year’s Sydney International

Boat Show.


Jessica Watson, otherwise known as ‘the darling of the high seas’ navigated the

world in under eight months, and will appear at the Better Boating Lounge at the

show to share her amazing journey and incredible story with the visiting public as

well as discuss her exciting book launch.


Domenic Genua, Marketing and Event Manager for the Boating Industry Association

said it was ‘truly exciting’ to be able to confirm Jessica Watson as the show’s special

guest.


This year, the Sydney International Boat Show will be an extravagant affair setting a

benchmark as the largest boat show in the Southern Hemisphere with over 70,000

attendees predicted to visit. Situated against the pristine backdrop of Darling

Harbour, the Sydney International Boat Show will be a tremendous event that will

captivate both genuine boating enthusiasts and newcomers alike.


The Boat Show will be an extraordinary event with plenty to see, hear and do on the

day from visiting the Historical Boat Displays to gain an interesting insight into the

history of boating, watching the Musto Fashion Parades for the latest boating looks,

entering the popular Photography Competition and embarking on a memorable

voyage with the Discover Boating Tours of Sydney Harbour. There are plenty of

exciting activities that will be sure to be enjoyed by all visitors.


As always, a show highlight will be the spectacular marina on Cockle Bay. Set against

the beautiful backdrop of the harbour and city skyline, families can enjoy the

spectacle of the best the marine industry has to offer.


Along with Jessica Watson, other guest speakers will include Don McIntyre, Sean

Smith (‘the Fat Paddler’) and the Norris Family who will share their remarkable

boating journeys at the show and offer the audience a firsthand insight into these

personal experiences which changed their lives.
