The British Sailing Team will be out in force at the RYA Dinghy Show in association with Yachts & Yachting - led by the athletes picked to represent Team GB at Tokyo 2020.

Visitors to the show, held at Alexandra Palace on February 29 and March 1, will get the chance to rub shoulders with ten of the sailors who will fly the flag for Great Britain at the upcoming Olympics.

Reigning Olympic champion Hannah Mills and her world championship-winning crew Eilidh McIntyre will be among the sailing stars at the show, as will Nacra 17 world champions John Gimson and Anna Burnet and 49erFX world championship silver medallists Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey.

Current European 49er champs Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell will be there alongside London 2012 silver medallist Luke Patience and his Rio 2016 crew Chris Grube.

And of course the show will be presented by double Olympic gold medallist Sarah Ayton, London 2012 Olympian Annie Lush and rising Laser star Sam Whaley.

There will be several opportunities during the weekend for visitors to snap selfies with the sailors in the Interactive Zone in the Panorama Hall and Sailors' Corner.

The highlight will be a presentation and Q&A with the Tokyo 2020 sailors on the main stage at 11.45am on both days.

As well as talks and presentations, the sailors will be imparting their expert knowledge on trapezing, knot-tying and splicing, rigging, racing fitness and even eSailing.
