'Hour of Power' RSVP now, Marina training & SIBS sold out

We span the gamut this week in terms of stories and features. From 'three-eyed fish' and mutant marine creatures pulled out of the Noosa River to Superior Jetties confirming a deal in South Korea for a 65-berth marina, as well as plenty of news from NZ, Italy and WA.

This is your final chance to attend the Sandman PR 'Hour of Power' during SIBS, featuring the media and creative dynamo, Rob Belgiovane, who will reveal the keys to building your brand and keeping your business prominent, especially during a downturn. Visit for all the details.

On the topic of SIBS, the BIA of NSW tells us that the show is fully subscribed and anticipation is high, off the back of an outstanding Melbourne show. This week, Adelaide hosts the best of boats and boating lifestyle, 16-19 July, which the BIA in SA is promising will have something for everybody.

Also this week, an insider's report on the tragic events that led to the deaths of 4 crew onboard the 15m yacht, Excalibur and just this week, the prosecution of Melbourne boat builder, Alex Cittadini.

Visit frequently, as we update every day.

All the best for a great week!
