It’s going to be busy in October this year. Practically everything that was meant to happening around about now is being postponed until October. Latest casualty of the nCov19 virus, otherwise known as the WuFlu, is the Taiwan International Boat Show which was to have taken place 12-15 March. That's official.

Organisers have announced that the show is postponed without actually stating future dates – which is fair enough as of course nobody knows when this epidemic will be over. We keep hearing “October”, but we’re not filling up the spaces in the diary quite yet.

Thus far the Singapore Yacht Show, Taiwan International Boat Show, HK International Boat Show and Korea International Boat Show have all declared postponements or cancellations. That leaves the China (Shanghai) International Boat Show and the Japan International Boat Show yet to declare.
