More than 150 exhibitors are already confirmed for the 2019 RYA Dinghy Show, including: boat builders, class associations, sailing clubs, holiday companies and retailers.

As well as a full line up of expert speakers and Q&A sessions on the main stage, the popular Sailor’s Corner will be making a comeback along with the return of the Women’s Sailing Hub and Class Association Stage.

For the youngsters, the show’s treasure hunt will be back, and once again the Interactive Zone will be full of free activities, including sailing simulators and a 360 degree virtual reality sailing experience.

The RYA shows and promotions manager, Celia Edgington commented: “With so many fantastic features at the 2019 show, we are delighted to launch the new weekend tickets and want to encourage visitors to make the most of the show, connect with friends and like-minded ‘tribe’ members.
