Southampton Boat Show to feature Red Arrows flypast
Motorboat & Yachting: This year’s Southampton Boat Show is starting to shape up, with organisers confirming that the Red Arrows will be making a special appearance.
The famous Royal Air Force stunt team will be performing their aerobatics above Mayflower Marina from 15:40 to 16:00 on Saturday July 12.
Apart from the Red Arrows display, other key attractions include the 100ft Ferris wheel, which is returning for the second year in a row to offer visitors panoramic views of the show.
Meanwhile, the historic tall ship Earl of Pembroke will be open for visitors to climb aboard throughout the ten-day event.
Visitors will also be able to try out boating through various initiatives. Get Afloat will provide dinghy sailing and stand-up paddleboarding taster sessions for 8-16 year-olds, while Wet Wheels will be offering catamaran rides for wheelchair users.
The show, which is now in its 47th year, features a purpose-built marina to house the hundreds of models that are displayed on the water.
Advance tickets to the 2015 Southampton Boat Show are on sale now, priced at £15 per adult. Two children aged under 15 can go for free with each paying adult.
