Visitors to the RYA Dingy Show this weekend are urged to visit the Andrew Simpson Foundation stand and enter its prize draw to win one of two fantastic prizes. Up for grabs are a watersports adventure holiday at the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre in Lake Garda, Italy, for four people, and an ErgoFit 50N high-end buoyancy aid from Crewsaver.

All visitors need to do is visit the Andrew Simpson Foundation (ASF) stand B40 and leave their contact details on a competition postcard.

The Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre in Italy is set up for anyone who wants to take their skills on the water to the next level. Fantastic sailing waters coupled with breathtaking views and thermal winds means that if you and your family are looking for the absolute ultimate in sailing and watersports training, this is definitely the venue for you. Located in one of the most famous sailing locations in the world, the centre offers RYA sailing and windsurfing courses, foiling courses and experiences and class-specific coaching, in addition to an on-site restaurant and facilities. Set on the spectacular shores of Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake, the centre offers the perfect balance between relaxing and being active on an unforgettable trip. Plus, the local area is a delight to explore.

"Based at a world class sailing location, our centre at Lake Garda is a renowned venue of excellence for watersports, with a fantastic range of water and land-based activities, running everything from kids camps to Olympic and high-level sailing clinics" says Richard Percy, CEO of the Andrew Simpson Foundation.

The other amazing prize is an ErgoFit 50N high-end buoyancy aid from Crewsaver. This provides the most advanced safety specification a buoyancy aid has offered to date, combining features such as spare air attachments and line cutter stowage with a low profile, snag free design. Plus, it looks fantastic. Visitors to the RYA Dinghy Show can find out more about Crewsaver's products alongside the ASF on stand B40.

The Andrew Simpson Foundation and Crewsaver enjoy a close relationship. Crewsaver is the ASF's official safety sponsor and supports its mission of increasing sailing participation and improving the lives of young people through sailing. ASF prides itself on offering the greatest experience possible at all of its centres, with the best kit, locations and instructors.

"We are proud to continue to be the Andrew Simpson Foundation's partner," says Hannah Burywood, Marketing Manager, from Crewsaver. "Our buoyancy aids are used by so many children who wouldn't have a chance to get out on the water and experience the joy it can bring, without the foundation. We're also delighted to be offering a prize, as we recognise the importance of spreading the word about the work which ASF does."

The prize draw can only be entered by visitors to the RYA Dinghy Show. Speak to the ASWC Staff on the stall for full terms and conditions. The watersports adventure holiday in Lake Garda includes six nights in a B&B, kit hire, and can be used at any point during 2019.
