A giant weekend for Australian sailors this weekend with the start of the northern migration and the Sydney Boat Show on the same weekend.

While there are a lot of powerboats on Cockle Bay, surveys show that the primary interest of 30% of the show visitors is sailing.

Say hello if you see us there.

As you'd expect, Sail-World will bring you detailed reports from those events and much more.
