Photos: Reuters, Getty Images WHAT'S ON MELINDA HAM REDISCOVER THE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE Whether you're planning a humble fishing trip or a global voyage, you're sure to find inspiration at the show. E ver wondered what the inside of a multimillion-dollar yacht looks like? Or what it takes to cross the Tasman in a kayak? Or to sail around the world single-handed? Once a year, boating enthusiasts converge on the Sydney International Boat Show at Darling Harbour to find out what's new and exciting in the world of sailing, canoeing, kayaking, cruising, waterskiing, fishing and racing. As well as seeing some amazing vessels, many walk away imbued with the spirit of adventure. This year's show promises to be more inspirational than ever. Visitors will be able to join in with a range of experiences, such as meeting Jessica Watson, the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe; hitting the harbour on a free cruise and seeing a solar boat with a cutting-edge sustainable energy design. The marketing and events manager for the Boat Industry Association of NSW, Domenic Genua, says families are increasingly seeing the potential for pleasure boating -- a departure from the days when it was dad alone who hit the water on a Sunday morning. ''In the last 10 years there's been this enormous move, bringing the family back into boating,'' he says. ''Boat designers have recognised this and are making seats more padded, adding toilets and drink holders to cater for families. It's about having a fun day out on the water all together.'' Genua says show organisers have tried to appeal to the whole family, with attractions ranging from fashion shows to fishing demonstrations. These are some of the highlights. TALES OF THE HIGH SEAS Nothing inspires quite like hearing tales of real-life adventure, straight from the mouths of the people who lived them. Fresh from her around-the-world achievement, young yachtswoman Jessica Watson will be on hand at the Better Boating Lounge. Watson made the cover of the Herald's Sydney International Boat Show guide last year when she was still an untested 16-year-old with big dreams. Her achievement shows how far courage and vision will take you. Watson sailed into Sydney Harbour on May 15, 2010, after 210 days at sea and was cheered by a huge crowd that included then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. She will be talking about her voyage and new book True Spirit. Also appearing will be yachtsman Don McIntyre, who has just completed a re-creation of a trip taken
