The RYA are set to return to this year's Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker International, from 7-9 June 2019. The free to attend, south coast boat show, promises a weekend of family fun and everything boating.

Experts from the RYA will be on hand throughout the weekend with all the information you need to get out on-the-water this summer. So whether you're looking for 'Try Sailing' opportunities, training courses, or want to know more about RYA membership, make sure to stop by the RYA stand (ER28) - East Quay area in front of the Thistle Hotel - to talk to the team.

As well as a marina full of boats and more than 200 exhibitors, this year visitors will also be able to get on the water and try sailing, powerboating, kayaking and paddle boarding with free taster sessions.

Marking the launch of the RYA's 'Try Sailing' initiative, running from June - September, the 'on the water' sessions - facilitated by Rockley Watersports, Dorset Marine Training and the Yacht Clubs of Poole - are set provide show visitors with an opportunity to have a go and find out which on-the-water activity is right for them. Simply turn up, book a slot and get on-the-water, no experience necessary!

RYA Shows and Promotions Manager, Celia Edgington commented: "We are delighted to be returning to the Poole Harbour Boat Show this year. Following on from our Push the Boat Out campaign, there will be opportunities throughout the summer for beginners to 'Try Sailing' and we're really looking forward to kicking things off in Poole.

"Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned boater, we'll be on hand to offer advice on everything from where to get started to the benefits of RYA Membership."

Now in its fifth year, the three day boating festival will feature a spectacular showcase of yachts and motor cruisers, tall ships, marine equipment, clothing and watersports gear. With waterborne demos, taster sessions, live music and fireworks, there will be plenty to keep the whole family entertained!
