public to step on board a number of yachts and watercraft berthed in St Helier Marina while an array of
lifestyle and marine accessories exhibitors, local artisans, food and refreshment stalls will be lined up along
the adjacent quaysides. There will also be a full on stage entertainment programme and activities specifically
The Royal Navy has been a regular participant at the annual show since it first started and next year will be
no exception; strengthening the close relationship it enjoys with the Island.
