On Saturday (12:00) meet Olympic gold medalist Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre who will be talking about Olympic lifestyle, travelling the world and how to stay fit and healthy. You can also pitch your questions to Paralympic gold medalist Helena Lucas (11am Saturday and 4pm Sunday).

RYA Regional Development Officer, Susie Moore will be joined by Felpham Sailing Club to share top tips on how to get afloat, where to find female only sailing sessions, social events and comfortable kit to keep you warm (13:00 both days).

"We're really excited about the brand new line up of talks which will take place throughout the weekend on the Women's Sailing Hub" explains RYA Show and Promotions Manager Celia Edgington.
