I thought I'd let you into a secret, after having yet another offer accepted on a great boat in less than 24 hours.
BoatBid Auction - 14th to the 18th July - Bidding has begun!
The next auction runs from Friday 14th July 2017 until Tuesday 18th July 2017.
As its name implies it is NOT a race as such but an opportunity to pitch up your vessel amongst others and see how you fair. Participating vessels range in length, design and capability which determines your start time smallest first, with the aim of finishing at about the same time.
This really is true - to celebrate MOD Pizza Brighton's birthday, they're giving away free pizza ALL DAY on Wednesday 31st May!

A quick video, with yet another set of hints and tips on checking your lifejackets, direct from boatshed Brighton! (Apologies for the quality!)
My family and I were invited to the Land Rover BAR road show on Saturday 6th of May which was held at BAR America's Cup HQ in Portsmouth.
DEMO: Rare chance to see a life raft inflating.
Opportunities like this don't come along very often! If you have a life raft, do you know what's in it? This quick vid shows what's contained in a typical life raft and what it's used for. Love from Boatshed Brighton and Nicky's Canvasworks!
Only a week to go until the next auction which takes place from 14-18 April..
As Boatshed's Environmental Manager, it'd be rude of me not to try and help this lovely gent pass on a piece of history - SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE IS LOOKING FOR THIS ENGINE!

A great time at Brighton marina, for the first new and used boat show - Boatshed Brighton and Rib-X partnered up, along with the "Boatshed Brighton" lovelies (Laura and Jo) for a couple of days of fun, noise, new customers and lots and lots of bubbly! Families and friends turned up too!
Find Your Dream Boat!
One first mate needed for this amazing sailing trip to the Azores and back - will cost you around £12 per day for a couple of weeks or so. You just need to be a nice person with sailing experience, non smoker and willing to help sail the boat!
