This week we present another varied and global news offering.
Not long after the Shanghai (China) Boat Show, 14-17 April, the Qingdao Boat Show has announced it will run 27-29 May at the Qingdao Olympic Sailing centre, part of China's determined strategy to become a force in world yachting and marine manufacturing. Between 13-17 April Qingdao will host the China circuit of the Extreme Sailing Series™ 2011 - a significant step into the burgeoning Asian market.
We also have news of new members joining SYBA, and additions to its Board, plenty of innovative products, and a feature on the realities of boat storage in Australia which is resulting in the popularity of investment in marina berths.
There is plenty of local and international news poised to break, so visit again and frequently to keep right up to date with our world of marine business.
