It is considered poetic license when reality and art intersect, but what about when yachtsmen and fine art cross paths?
This year's London Boat Show will have a mixture of both for attendees with Olympian sailors and fine art teaming up for the regatta. The themed-event, Fine Art Sails, will show the mainsail of the competing yachts completely covered in artwork by international artists. The London Boat Show sets sail next month: January 18—20, 2013.
Murray Ellis MD of National Boat Shows said: "We are delighted to be working with Fine Arts Sails to be hosting this inaugural regatta at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show. This event will be a great complement to the Show adding a special attraction for Show visitors.
