If a sailor’s life is the life for you, make sure you visit the Sydney International Boat Show. For the first time this year the Boat Show is in TWO locations - Darling Harbour and Glebe Island. There’s plenty to see with more than 210 exhibitors. You can also check out over 150 vessels in the marina. The Boat Show is the perfect place to learn about all the latest boats, services and equipment. You can also see education displays and hear from guest speakers.
And you could be setting sail in your own yacht valued at over $250,000. Step aboard the Hanse 345 yacht to try it out. When you buy a raffle ticket you’re also supporting Sailors with disABILITIES. The not-for-profit organization aims to build confidence and self-esteem with free sailing programs.

Sydney Weekender, hosted by Mike Whitney, is now in its 24th year!
Travelling around the city and throughout the length & breadth of the state, each episode investigates the best places to stay, eat and play so you can make the most of your weekend.
After retiring from international cricket, Mike first appeared on Sydney Weekender back in 1994, and since then has loved every minute of it.
Over the years, Mike has hosted Sydney Weekender from all over New South Wales; from Eden in the south, to Tibooburra in the far northwest of the state.
One of Mike's favourite moments was when he had the chance to fly in a fully restored De Havilland Vampire fighter jet at the Temora Aviation Museum. "The pilot opened the throttle and sent the Vampire vertical," he says, "It was such a blast - the whole time I was thinking - I've got the best job in the world."
Sydney Weekender is on every Sunday at 5.30pm on the Seven Network in Sydney, and across N.S.W. & the A.C.T. on the PRIME Network. It's repeated a week later on 7TWO.
We're also on 7TWO on Saturdays - Please check your local guide for times.
