The Crick Boat Show is on schedule to return on 20 to 22 August, having been postponed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The show, held on the Grand Union in Northampton, was originally scheduled for May but a virtual event was held online in March instead.

Exhibitors from across the boating industry will be on hand along with free seminars, boats to view on land and water, historic vessels and mooring and camping.

Historic vessels, seminars and more

Among the boats on view will be historic vessels including working boat Aldgate renovated in the 1980s, and Renfrew, built by W J Yarwood & Sons for the Grand Union Canal Cargo Carrying Company in the 1930s.

Hosted by the technical editor of Waterways World magazine, a range of free seminars will cover topics such as buying, selling, designing and refitting boats; electrical systems; reducing environmental impact; boat maintenance and all aspects of life afloat. All talks are followed by a Q&A session.

Representatives from the Canal & River Trust will be on hand at the Trust’s marquee to answer any questions on owning a narrowboat, running a business, finding moorings, angling or volunteering to help with the Trust’s work. Also featuring is the traditional ‘Favourite Boat in Show’ award, sponsored by Haven Knox-Johnston.
