Korea's planned marine hub, Tsunami forecast system, Sydney countdown

Hope you had a great Easter break, wherever you are, and celebrated with family and friends, and not too much over indulgence!

This week we have beefed up our features, with some interesting insight from Marine NZ in to the commercial gains that flow from involvement in events of the stature of the America's Cup, a preview of the new book, 'Oceana' by TV actor and long-time environmental activist, Ted Danson, and a look at the attractions of Lizard Island - rumoured to be the honeymoon destination for the young Royals who in case you have avoided the hype, are pledging their throth Friday, then apparently ducking off downunder to Lizard Island for some respite!

There's an update from the Korea International Boat Show and how the region hosting it aims to become a global marine business and lifestyle destination off the back of the event, as well as a review of another marvellous book by Sail-World Cruising Editor, Nancy Knudsen, called 'Shooting Stars and Flying Fish'.

So in all, more than enough to make up for not receiving your dose of MarineBusiness-World yesterday!

Coming soon, we have some major news about Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show and a compelling reason to head to the Gold Coast for this year's event.

Visit often and keep in touch.
