Trevor says his team is keen to find out what destinations are at the top of your list, so the favourite destination among Expo visitors will be the location for the prize.

Managing Director Trevor Joyce said, 'Sail Expo brings a highly qualified audience of sailors and people interested in sailing holidays to the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club – the home of sailing on the peninsula. We had a great position inside the yacht club last year and we knew straight away that people were interested in what we had to say'.

The 2014 Mariner Boating’s Rally program kicks off in April in Tahiti and closes in October in Turkey. The team will be available during Sail Expo to answer any questions you have, so drop in to discuss your next boating holiday!
