TAFE BIA MoU, Argus engieering, Audi renews sponsorship of CYCA

We have every base covered in this week's fresh news and features, covering post-Sydney boat show sales (and one very regal encounter) as well as the details of the official signing of the MoU between TAFE NSW and BIA NSW, ensuring the skills and career paths to the marine industry have direction and support.

As far as human interest goes, you can't get a better story that the Find a Crew feature on would-be-sailors who have found their 'dream boats' via the site and are seeing the world's most exotic locations by sea, in some cases working onboard and in others volunteering.

There's a profile on the fascinating not-so-little Argus E35, the brainchild of Gary Pacey of Outback Marine, which the company is using as the living-breathing showcase of their engineering prowess.

Brisbane Boat Show is coming up 25-28 August, followed by Darwin, 3 & 4 September and Mandurah - Australia's third largest boat show - 14-16 October.

Internationally, our exporters and brands are priming their strategies and stock for Fort Lauderdale and the European shows - Amsterdam, Cannes, Monaco, Southampton in September and more in October including Genoa and Barcelona, followed by METS in Amsterdam 15-17 November.

AIMEX and other contacts will be attending these events and will bring readers all the innovations and trends straight from the source.

There are plenty more features in the pipeline and news, views and reviews, so pop back in frequently (and join the over 1 million other boaties around the world who visit us each year!)

Have a top week!
