I'm not sure - I know one of the cvrda members will have his GP14 there, but other than that, no clue.

Oh, Fireball No6 will be on the Fireball stand, I believe, as they celebrate 50 years.

As the others said, though, just go and enjoy, and remember, the exhibitors generally love to chat!

I do that, and I think how old and fat/thin they look, then realise they're thinking the same about me... Confused
the same, but different...

Not on a stand but we usually go around handing out cvrda event leaflets at every opportunity.

What is the measure by which the success, or otherwise , of a class's appearance at the Dinghy Show can be judged?
 
In 2012, has any Class/Manufacturer got the balls to say/estimate after the event how many orders are generated by their participation.....or not? No secret that Excel and Southampton's effect is limited....
 
Wonderful social event for the yachteratti it may be, but does it actually make any significant difference to punters' choices these days?

I'll let you know! I think / hope / believe the show will make a sizeable difference to the 3.7 in the Uk.
