WATCH: Professional jet skier set to perform at Boat Show

Saturday 13 April 2024


This year's Barclays Jersey Boat Show will feature stunt displays by a professional jet skier who became the youngest ever British champion at the age of 14.

Jack Moule became the British National Freestyle Champion in both the amateur and professional jetski classes in 2008 – just 18 months after he was considered old enough to ride his own jetski.

He is now set to show off his stunts at the Barclays Jersey Boat Show 2024 from Saturday 4 May until Monday 6 May.

A full-sized replica of a 17th century Spanish galleon will also be on show at the Boat Show, which is the largest free-entry public event in the Channel Islands and regularly attracts more than 30,000 people,

The nearly 50m-long El Galeon boat was meant to be last year's show, but technical issues cancelled the visit.

Ports of Jersey said crew from the ship would be on hand at the Albert Pier to explain the history of the vessel and the Spanish fleet it replicates. 

Other attractions include two Royal Navy Archer Class patrol and training vessels, which are used for mine hunting, and a Viking amphibious armoured all-terrain vehicle, which can land troops ashore.

There will also be a Royal Navy dive tank and dive team.

Visitors to the show will be able to look around many of the vessels on display. Alongside the boat displays, there will be a catering village, an outdoor and active zone from Geomarine, stalls along Albert Pier and a kid zone in Marina Gardens.

Harbourmaster Bill Sadler said: “Over the years, the Barclays Jersey Boat Show has become a firm favourite in many people’s calendars, as there really is something for everyone. It showcases the very best of the island’s maritime community to both residents and visitors.

“We’re delighted that Barclays is continuing to sponsor this show, alongside our other sponsors, marine traders, exhibitors, and participants.”

Barclays Managing Director and Head of Crown Dependencies, Paul Savery said the show was a "fantastic opportunity to showcase the very best of our island’s thriving maritime, leisure and tourism industries".
