Today's news from the Sail, Power and Watersports Show is that the Boatshed Babes, Sarah and Caroline, both decided to help the cause by throwing themselves over the side of the Earls Court Exhibition centre.

Abseiling from the top of the exhibition centre with the help of the Royal Marine Commando Display Team, the two brave girls pronounced the experience as "Wow" and "Fantastic" and "Scary" and "Amazing" so obviously it was good fun!

The girls followed the example of Hilary Lister, a quadriplegic sailor from Kent, who amazingly also abseiled down the side of Earls Court. She was repeating the experience from last year and loved every minute of the experience.

The Sail, Power and Watersports Show continues until Sunday 30th November and Boatshed and the BoatBid team look forward to seeing you - remember Fizz @ Five, the world's largest boat auction and some very exciting action all round.
