Represent your tribe at the RYA Dinghy Show

The RYA Dinghy Show in association with Yachts & Yachting is set to return to the magnificent Alexandra Palace on the weekend of 02-03 March 2019.

This year we will be celebrating the diversity in our sport, recognising the different ‘tribes’ that make up the dinghy sailing community through the show theme - #MyDinghyTribe.

It’s the perfect start to the new sailing year and we’re encouraging all clubs to get together and head to the show to represent your tribe, catch up with old friends and best of all immerse yourselves in all things dinghy sailing! What better excuse to organise a trip with your club members?

What’s on?

As well as a brand new line up of expert speakers and Q&A sessions with sailing legends and industry experts on the Main Stage and Knowledge Zone, the popular Sailor’s Corner will be making a comeback along with the return of the Women’s Sailing Hub and Class Association Stage.

With more than 150 exhibitors and interactive activities on offer, including the activity pool which will be making a comeback for 2019, there will be enough to keep you busy for the whole weekend.

Club briefing

By popular demand, the free RYA Club Briefing will also be back. Hosted on Saturday (02 March) at 10:30, it’s your chance to hear the latest club updates from RYA experts. Tea and coffee will be available for attendees from 10:00. Each club can book up to two places and each attendee will receive a complimentary ticket to the show at the end of the Briefing. Book your place.

Ask the experts

The Show is a brilliant opportunity to chat with many of the RYA experts including our Regional Development Officers (RDOs) who will be happy to answer any club related questions as well as providing advice on getting out on the water.

Always immensely helpful, RYA Legal Manager, Mandy Peters will be on hand to discuss GDPR and other club related issues.
