If they are eager boating enthusiasts then one event taking place in January may tickle their fancy and tick all the boxes when it comes to learning more about the activity.

The Tullett Prebon London Boat Show takes place from January 8th until January 17th 2010 and next year's event is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Held at ExCel, the show has everything any boating fans could possibly want and even those who prefer to stay on dry land can find something to amuse themselves with at the exhibition.
