With the success of British sportsmen and women in sailing, canoeing and rowing during the Olympics and Paralympics, the time could not be better to encourage new and more people into boating.

The BMF and Boatshed see a great opportunity to inspire young and old to get on the water, by giving them access to people who have "been there and got the t-shirt".

The role of the Bus is very much educational with the emphasis on learning about how to get on the water and inspiring people to get on the water. Visitors to the bus will be able to talk with a range of experts and ambassadors from different water-based activities from sailing and paddling to inland waterways and power boating.

Marine Industry Experts get involved with the bus
Why not join many other key marine industry partners, spending either half a day or a full day on-board the bus, talking about all aspect of boating?

We need you to pledge either half or a full day and talk to customers and answer their queries about being on the water and boating. Bring your branded gear and business cards too! The British Marine Federation and National Boat Shows have also kindly agreed to supply a free ticket for volunteers.

DATES: January 17th to January 20th inclusive 2013.
LOCATION: We are going to be part of the Outdoors Show(runs alongside the London Boat Show) and the Bus will be used here as a 'Showcase' for appearances at future local events.
