Kinsale's Bobby Nash will be exhibiting his framed 3D nautical charts at the Boot Dusseldorf show in Germany which starts this Saturday, January 18th and runs until January 26th.

A regular at the massive international show, Nash flies the flag for Ireland with his Lattitude 52 exhibition at hall seven very near the main entrance, stand number 70 D 09.

One of his classic black and white 3D charts on display (pictured above) is of the Westerschelde with gorgeous detail that cannot be found on modern charts.

Nash will also be displaying a selection from the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Bahrain, Lake Geneva, the Bosporus, Naples, Corsica and the River Ems.

To transport the works to Boot, Nash takes a ferry from Rosslare to Fishguard drives across the UK and take the Eurotunnel to Calais before a 5-hour drive to Dusseldorf. About 30 hours in total.

#AmericasCup - Relief chart specialists Latitude Kinsale have been commissioned to create the winners' trophies for the America’s Cup J Class Regatta in Bermuda this month.

Renowned artist Bobby Nash, based in Kinsale in West Cork, created unique 3D charts based on the classic Bermuda Islands map from the UKHO Admiralty archive for the first, second and third prizes in the exclusive regatta for traditional America’s Cup J Class yachts.

The 1950s-era chart shows the archipelago of islands and reefs that comprise the British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic — the complex structure painstakingly crafted by hand from as many as 2,000 individual pieces.

All three prizes are presented in frames incorporating patent-pending Surround Lighting for optimum illumination of their meticulous details.

“It’s a great honour to be selected as the creator of the overall prizes for the America’s Cup J-Class regatta in Bermuda,” said Bobby Nash. “To have my work appreciated by such a prestigious event and organisation is a reflection of 15 years of experience, design evolution and presentation.”

Latitude Kinsale is renowned worldwide for its soughtt-after 3D charts, framed lighting charts, relief nautical bespoke chart tables and commissions, creating a unique way to appreciate the beauty of the coastline and the sea.
