Southampton Boat Show
14th September 2018 @ 10:00 am - 23rd September 2018 @ 6:30 pm
Once again this year the Westerly owners Association had a stand at the Southampton boat show. The smooth running of the operation was achieved by Tim Pullen from the Membership Office who attended every day supported by a band of enthusiastic volunteers from our membership.
The general consensus from the exhibiters was that footfall was slightly down on last year, however we enjoyed a number of interesting Westerly related conversations with members and potential members. 226 members signed our visitor’s book, we signed up 12 new members and 6 members re-joined, as well as selling a number of items of merchandise.
The highlight was the Thursday afternoon pontoon party when our Commodore Mary Buchanan officially welcomed back Bill & Sue Redgrave from a 10 year sailing trip around the world in their Westerly Sealord Camomile.
