The RYA Dinghy Show 3 to 4 March

It is almost time for the annual pilgrimage to that windswept hill in north London, with snow often a bonus, to see what The RYA Dinghy Show has for us this year.

Now mainly a chance to grab some bargin sailwear and get a selfie with one of Team GBR, who willl be on duty, together with all the regular UK dinghy classes.

As well as a full line up of expert talks and coaching sessions, new this year is the Class Association Stage, giving the classes even more opportunities to showcase their class.

They will be joined at the show by boat retailers, books, clothing, clubs and training, holidays, insurance, retail, RIBs & engines, rigs, sails & covers and trailer stands.

Despite the much publicised drop in sailing activity over the last couple of years, visitor numbers seem to have bottomed out at around 8,000 for the two day event at Alexandra Palace, London, taking place over the weekend of 3 & 4 March this year.

Advance tickets are available at a special discount rate of £10.00 for RYA members and £12.50 for non-members.

RYA affiliated clubs can also take advantage of a special ticket price of £10 when booking six tickets or more. Don’t forget two children go free with each paying adult as well.

Anyone buying a ticket in advance will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a Suzuki powered safety boat for their club.

To buy your tickets visit Dinghyshow.org.uk or call the ticket hotline on 0844 858 9069.
