The RYA is delighted to confirm Yachts & Yachting and Suzuki Marine as sponsors of the RYA Dinghy Show for 2019.

Set to return to the magnificent Alexandra Palace on 02-03 March 2019, the RYA Dinghy Show in association with Yachts & Yachting and Suzuki is the only show in the world dedicated to dinghy sailing.

Long-term show exhibitors and supporters, Suzuki Marine are confirmed as sponsors continuing a 10-year association with the Show. The award-winning outboard motor manufacturer has forged a reputation for building marine engines that push the boundaries of power and performance, with some of the lightest, most compact models in their class. Visitors will be able to view their range of ultimate four stroke outboards on the Suzuki stand (F10) or visit for more information.

Fiona Cole, Head of Marketing for Suzuki GB's Motorcycle, Marine and ATV divisions said, "We're delighted to be continuing our support for the RYA Dinghy Show and the sport of dinghy sailing in general. We're committed to working with our partner boat builders such as Ribcraft and Rigiflex to provide the ultimate safety boat packages for sailing clubs and training centres to help them get even more people out on the water.

"The RYA Dinghy Show is a great opportunity for us to network with the dinghy sailing community and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there."

Yachts & Yachting will once again be returning to support the show as sponsor and official media partner. The performance sailing magazine covers everything from Optimists to offshore sailing and is packed with unmissable advice from world class sailors and industry experts.

Georgie Corlett-Pitt, Editor said: "We're delighted to continue our support for the Show as official media partner and publisher of the official Show Guide. The Show is an unmissable opportunity to meet our many readers who love dinghy sailing as much as we do! Without a doubt the weekend is a diary highlight and a great way to mark the start of the season."

Visit the team on stand C64 to pick up a special subscription deal plus don't miss the March issue of the magazine which includes your free copy of the Show Guide.

RYA Director of Sport Development, Alistair Dickson commented: "The Show wouldn't be possible without our sponsors and we are hugely grateful to Yachts & Yachting and Suzuki for their ongoing support and commitment.

"The RYA Dinghy Show marks the beginning of the new sailing season for many clubs. The theme this year is #MyDinghyTribe, recognising the different tribes that make up the very diverse dinghy sailing community and we hope to see as many 'tribes' there as possible."

Also supporting the Show this year, are new hosts, double Olympic gold medallist Shirley Robertson; sailing presenter and journalist Matt Sheahan; and Match Racing World Champion and Olympic sailor Annie Lush.

With something for dinghy sailors both old and new, the 150 exhibitors range from boat builders and sailing brands to class associations, sailing clubs and RYA programmes. There will also be a full schedule of expert speakers, Q&A sessions and demonstrations on the Show's five stages, as well as plenty of free interactive activities to inspire the whole family.
