RYA Director of Sport Development, Alistair Dickson commented: “The 2019 show is all about recognising the unique communities that form such a key part of dinghy sailing. Whether your ‘tribe’ is your class, team or club, your motivation or your cruising ground, the show will be all about celebrating the diversity within the sport and bringing the communities together.”
More than 150 exhibitors are already confirmed including: boat builders, class associations, sailing clubs, holiday companies and retailers. So whether it’s the latest kit you’re after, top tips from your favourite sailors to hone those skills on the water, or even to book your next family get-away, there will be something at the show for dinghy sailors old and new.
As well as a full line up of expert speakers and Q&A sessions on the mainstage, the popular Sailor’s Corner will be making a comeback along with the return of the Women’s Sailing Hub and Class Association Stage.
For the youngsters, the famous RYA Dinghy Show treasure hunt will be back with a tribal twist and once again the Interactive Zone will be full of free activities to inspire the whole family! Experience the thrill of being out on the water without ever leaving dry land on the sailing simulators, trapeze rig and 360o ‘On the Water’ virtual reality sailing experience.
