Last year been the first year I went (only cos i had free tickets) but didn't find a lot to look at. The big players aren't there so it all depends what you are going for.

I am going to try and not go, only cos I can then save up for Excel/Ally Pally to buy stuff.

Went one day last year- as said, it seemed a bit content (and people)-light. Not going again. Even the shopping was rubbish.

Not been to this or the Dinghy Show at Ally Pally.

Which is the better show and why?

I'm interested in picking up some clothing and possibly a few fittings. Which is likely to be the best bet?

The dinghy show is the best for dinghy sailing, without a shadow of a doubt. It's a much more friendly show and there will be more forumites about to say hello to!

The Dinghy Show easily, especially dinghy stuff. More stands, more deals, more friendly!

So it is to hand for everyone what are the dates for The Dinghy Show?

Sounds like it will be worth a visit.

A show including the likes of World Championship winning 505, P&B, Ovington Boats, Bethwaite Simulator, together with Flying 15, Classic and Vintage Dinghy racing Association, Mirror (dont forget to buy a raffle ticket) Blade Rider, Tasar, Optimist, Wayfarer, Wanderer,Cadet, Musto Skiff, Solution,Byte C2,Osprey, Gull,Albacore,Phantom, and others must be worth a look. Time for dinghy sailors to come out from the cold and bring new blood to the sport!!!!??????
