Here’s what the exhibitors said:

Rooster: “First Dinghy Show post Covid and it’s been an absolute blast. It’s been great to come back, chat to everyone and have conversations about regattas, events and what kit everyone’s wearing! We’ve had a massive success and we’re having a better year each and every time, despite everything that’s been going on in the world.”

Here’s what the visitors said:

“We’ve come up from East Sussex today, we’ve been coming every year and we just really enjoy seeing that showcase of all the different boats and activities, it’s really inspiring. My son also loves seeing all the ‘famous people- his aim is to take as many selfies as he can with the British Sailing Team”.
