About the RYA Dingy Show

The RYA Dinghy Show, in association with Yachts & Yachting, is the only show in the world dedicated exclusively to dinghies. This year's theme is "a world of opportunity - see where dinghy sailing can take you."

Team GB sailors will be at the event presenting on the stages, chatting to visitors on Sailor's Corner and helping on the interactive features around the show.

Sailors in attendance this year include Sarah Ayton, Sam Whaley, Hannah Mills, Eilidh McIntyre, Luke Patience and Chris Grube, plus others.

There will also be over 170 exhibitors across two main halls, as well as coaching sessions from world-class experts associated with the sport.

We will also have product and hardware available to view, including Fly blocks, V blocks, Power3 ratchet blocks, cam cleats, a cat mainsheet system, McLube, plus more.

Don't forget, if you're experiencing any sailing issues, big or small, our Tech Team will be ready to provide professional advice and solutions to get you back out on the water to have fun again.
