Allen set for the RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show

by Allen 17 Feb 10:30 GMT 26-27 February 2022

It's been two long years since we last welcomed watersports enthusiasts onto our stand at what is now called the RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show and we cannot wait to once again talk boats and boat bits with you!

For the first time, the RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show will be held under the roof of Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre over the weekend of 26th & 27th February. We will of course be exhibiting and you can find us on stand D22. 

We've got so much information to share from the past two years, but here are some of the highlights you can expect if you do visit us at the show. 

Win yourself a T-shirt and racing rules poster signed by Gold Medalists, Olympians and Team Allen sailors, Dylan Fletcher, Stuart Bithell, Luke Patience, Saskia Tidey and many more!

To win, just come along to our stand and guess the number of individual parts in the clear box, simple! Check out the video below for a helping hand... and yes, we did include the parts that miss the box!
New Products

It may have been a crazy couple of years, but that hasn't stopped us from doing what we do best and engineering the best sailboat performance hardware! Below is a list of some of the products we have launched since the last Dinghy Show, most will be on display at our stand and our team will be more than happy to discuss all in greater detail.

Through Deck Blocks 
Our newest range of through deck blocks were launched at the start of 2021. They offer frictionless guidance for rope and wire control lines that are required to pass through a deck. Featuring a hard-wearing acetal body, shaped perfectly to house the sheave, which results in a performance that you can rely on for adjustable rigging and other highly loaded applications. Available with one or two sheaves and in plain and ball bearing systems to suit a wide variety of applications. 
20mm Ti3 Block Range 

The A2020Ti3 was originally developed for the paragliding and kiting industries to be attached via a webbing strap, the Ti3 has now started to find its way into the marine sector thanks to its super easy to use design.

Featuring a wider opening at the top of the block and flatter sides has resulted in the A2020Ti3 being simpler to thread rope around. The block still fits in the same footprint as the older A2020Tii and makes use of the same three sheave options which are tried and tested across the 20mm range.

Team Allen Sailors

We're proud to support some of the best sailors in the World. Many of whom are members of the British sailing team and will be taking time out of their busy schedule's to spend it with us on our stand. Some of the sailors that are likely to be seen floating around with us include Olympic Gold Medalists, Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell. Olympians Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey, as well as, a handful of other professional sailors! Come and have a chat with them and see why winners rely on Allen. 

Display Boat 

If you haven't seen it, we have been running a weekly guessing game over on our social media channels (click the social links below to go and check it out). The boat behind the "guess the boat" game will be unveiled on Saturday morning and displayed on our stand throughout the weekend. The boat is equipped with a full fitout of our performance products, allowing you to see the best ways to utilise different fittings and control systems.
