Returning to Alexandra Palace, London on the weekend of 02-03 March, tickets are now on sale for the RYA Dinghy Show 2019 in association with Yachts and Yachting.

With more on this year than ever before, we are delighted to announce that in addition to ticket promotions for RYA members and children, a new weekend ticket will also be available for visitors. A brand new line up of speakers and the usual show favourites will be spread across the weekend giving those who wish to return for a second day of the action even more to see and do.


This year we will be celebrating the different 'tribes' that make up the dinghy sailing community, recognising the diversity within our sport and bringing everyone together under one roof.

RYA Director of Sport Development, Alistair Dickson commented: "The 2019 show is all about recognising the unique communities that form such a key part of dinghy sailing. Whether your 'tribe' is your class, team or club, your motivation or your cruising ground, the show will be all about celebrating the diversity within the sport and bringing the communities together."


More than 150 exhibitors are already confirmed including: boat builders, class associations, sailing clubs, holiday companies and retailers. So whether it's the latest kit you're after, top tips from your favourite sailors to hone those skills on the water, or even to book your next family get-away, there will be something at the show for dinghy sailors old and new.

As well as a full line up of expert speakers and Q&A sessions on the mainstage, the popular Sailor's Corner will be making a comeback along with the return of the Women's Sailing Hub and Class Association Stage.

For the youngsters, the famous RYA Dinghy Show treasure hunt will be back with a tribal twist and once again the Interactive Zone will be full of free activities to inspire the whole family! Experience the thrill of being out on the water without ever leaving dry land on the sailing simulators, trapeze rig and 360o 'On the Water' virtual reality sailing experience.

RYA Shows and Promotions Manager, Celia Edgington commented: "With so many fantastic features at the 2019 show, we are delighted to launch the new weekend tickets and want to encourage visitors to make the most of the show, connect with friends and like-minded 'tribe' members. It's a brilliant opportunity to bring the whole community together."

A long standing favourite with the dinghy sailing community, the RYA Dinghy Show is the perfect event to start to the season and the ideal setting to connect with your 'tribe'. Keep your eyes peeled for the full line up of speakers and our brand new show hosts to be announced soon.
