Our exhibitors said...




“It’s been an absolutely fantastic show. The Saturday was absolutely heaving and Sunday we were also still busy going into the closing hour. As an exhibitor it’s really easy to come here, it’s been great and we’ll be back next year.”

-Hartley Boats



"The RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show is truly unique. No other show is like it anywhere in the world. To get small boating under one roof where it’s only focused on the dinghy scene is truly special and if you’re in that marketplace, you have to be here."

- RS Sailing

Ease Distribution


“We’ve had a lot of high quality people who know what they’re looking for, what to come and explore the products before they buy. You can’t have a sport without having a shop window [like this].”

- Ease Distribution



“You get young squad sailors, grandma and grandpa who want to get back into sailing as well as little nippers who are just starting out on their sailing journey.  We love the show, so we’ll always be here.”

- Rockley Watersports
