Mining buoys boating, London Boat Show, Pantaenius partners with ASMEX

Another scorcher, on the east coast of Aus, with fires wreaking havoc and much despair in all our eastern states, and if you're in the West, it's hot and humid with Tropical Cyclone Narelle threatening. You only need read Dorothea Mackellar's poem, 'My Country' to realise it was ever thus. These extremes are a normal summer, just hazards we have to live through.

This issue, loads of fresh, original news, including on-the-spot reports from the 2013 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, where publisher, Rob Kothe is discovering how that event runs, who exhibits, who attends, and some of the trends across boating, at the large and smaller ends.

From me, a look at the correlation between the fortunes of the Australian mining sector, commodity prices and exports, and recreational boating, again from PWCs to yachts.

Rottnest Island - great place to spend a weekend  .. .

The state-based experts who head up their respective boating industry associations shed light on how the mining sector feeds in to boating and what initiatives they are taking to capitalise on this wealthy sector, now and into the future.

In sponsorship news, there's a new partnership that promises to boost the profile and program of the 2013 ASMEX conference to be held at Sanctuary Cove, 21 & 22 May.

If you're just back to work, Happy New Year. Let's make it a great one!

Top boating!
