A key event at the end of the year the Paris International Boat Show will once again take over the Parc des expositions at Porte de Versailles in late December. It presents all the latest in the world of sailing and water sports for the coming seasons to those who are passionate about this domain. QuaFour sectors are represented: Sailing, tourism, motorboats and equipment. The show hosts some 750 exhibitors who will be offering their advice and showcasing the latest products on the stands. Activities and events are on the programme throughout the show, including beginners' sessions, conferences, demonstrations, screenings, book signings and so on: there is something for all ages and all interests. Several other events will be taking place at the same time as the fair. Don't miss the start of the Nautic Sup Paris Crossing, taking place right beside the BNF François Mitterrand. This is the Paris Stand Up Paddle crossing, in which 400 competitors will take to the Seine for this unusual race.
