The Grand Pavois decided not to open its doors on Monday. The wind conditions of the night and the early morning with gusts to over 51 knots that damaged the structures do not allow the organization team to open the site to visitors.
Alain Pochon, President of the Grand Pavois: “We are very sorry to have made this decision for our enthusiastic visitors and for the marine professionals. After having been on site since 6:00 this morning, we must admit that the conditions of reception and security matters do not enable us to open the boat show today.”
The Grand Pavois, International boat show will be held from the 19th to the 24th September 2012 at the “Port des Minimes”, La Rochelle. More than 850 exhibitors are expected over 100,000 m2 of exhibition space. Of the 750 boats on show 300 will be afloat. Once again there will be themed areas open to all visitors and for this 40th edition of the show the nation of Brazil will be the guest of honour. Le Grand Pavois is the reference in boat shows for enthusiasts, offering unique opportunities to try boats out in the water before buying. Le Grand Pavois is one of the Top 5 international boat shows.
