Seeing a massive yacht on a busy road could have been a sight I would have loved to enjoy in person. But I do pity the drivers who must have pulled their hair and clawed their eyes out of frustration considering the bumper to bumper situation. This slow boat caused lengthy tailbacks on the A12 as it made its way from the East of England to the annual Southampton Boat Show, which starts at the end of this week. It is one of those lucky boats that will be a part of the show which last year attracted more than 127,000 visitors.
I am sure the boat wouldn’t wanna miss the opening ceremony bearing in mind Olympic sailing gold medal winners Ben Ainslie, Paul Goodison, Iain Percy, Andrew Simpson, Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson, will open the show on Friday.
