At 15.00 on Saturday 14 September, join the RYA Publications team at the PSP Southampton Boat Show on the RYA stand (EO37) to celebrate the launch of the new RYA Rigging Handbook.  

Joined by the book’s author, Allan Barwell, you’ll be able to find out more about the essentials of rigging, learn more about what you can expect from the book, while destroying a few rigging myths as well!  Allan will also take time after the launch to sign copies of his new title and answer any of your burning questions.  

As well as being able to pick up a copy of the new title; to support the launch RYA Publications has teamed up with Sailing Holidays Ltd to offer one lucky prize-draw winner a free one week flotilla sailing holiday for two people on a 27ft Jaguar around the Greek Islands, including flights from Gatwick, transfers and your yacht!   

All you have to do is purchase a printed copy of the RYA Rigging Handbook, either at the show or via the RYA webshop and you’ll be entered in to the draw.  The prize draw will also apply to the RYA Rigging Handbook eBook version that will be available from October.  

As well as the fantastic RYA Rigging Handbook prize draw, to support the launch of the new RYA VHF Handbook eBook, RYA Publications has teamed up with Garmin to offer one lucky prize-draw winner a VHF 100i Black.
