The array of electronic goodies and gadgets available for boats is mind blowing and the advertising for them seems to insist you’d be foolish to venture out without all of them so Boatshed Plymouth called by “Just Right” one of this year’s Jester Challenge entrants to see what electronics Gus Davidson will be using to get him and his 20’ Golant Gaffer safely across the pond. Gus has a keen eye on the budget as he’s raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support so he weighs the cost of each piece of equipment carefully to ensure as much money as possible goes to the charity.

The Jester Challenge has its supporters and critics, but whatever you think about it it’s certainly becoming a firm fixture on the sailing calendar. The 2010 event which leaves from off Plymouth Breakwater at 13:00 BST on 23rd May already has 93 entries. Boats are less than 30 feet but the current list is an incredibly fascinating and varied mix of boats and people. One such sailor is Gus Davidson who are taking part in the challenge in his boat Just Right in order to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer support. Raising money is their main aim although there will undoubtedly be some adventure along the way .

A stunning Southampton Boat Show

A stunning Southampton Boat Show

Sunday, 20 September 2009

The Southampton Boat Show drew to a close today and Boatshed.com along with many other exhibitors can report that it has been another very successful and enjoyable event. Our stand this year which was an actual shed was incredibly busy and as always was manned by members of the Boatshed team throughout the show so we were able to explain all the fantastic Boatshed features to visitors and demonstrate how best to use the site. Business was brisk in both the buying and selling of used boats and we also had great interest from those wanting to join the Boatshed team and open new Boatshed offices to expand the business further.
