The highlighted topic of the 24th Budapest Boat Show is sea and ocean sailing. We put the highlight on the Volvo Ocean Race, one of the most famous around the world yacht race. The boat, the teams and the stopovers of the race of 2014-15 will be presented on the event. On the Volvo Ocean Race Stand the visitors will have the possibility to discover the life of the crew, become a teammember or be a helmsman for a few second. During the programs of the Generali Stage we are also sharing backstage secrets of the race. Several programs will be organized connected to the race, like Volvo Ocean Race Grind Competition, Volvo Ocean Race Cinema, as well as we will present the real replica of the Trophy.
One of the novelties of the exhibition is the presentation of boating related professions. The visitors will have the possibility to learn about the producing process of sails or how the carbon fiber strengthen the body of a sailboat.
Budapest Boat Show together with the Hungarian Yachting Association is launching a photo competition in the topic of „Sailing: where Man meets Nature” where we are expecting sailing connected photos. The best of them will be exhibited on Budapest Boat Show.
On the Generali Stage besides the Volvo Ocean Race, other programs will take place as well: with the contribution of the Hungarian Yachting Association, hungarian olympians and world champions will speak about sailing and their experiences.
