RYA Dinghy Show plans

Plans have been announced for the free virtual RYA Virtual Dinghy Show, presented by Suzuki, over the weekend of 27-28 February.

The event was due to take place at Farnborough Exhibition Centre but there will now be a huge series of talks, interactive coaching sessions and other presentations online.

Members of the British Sailing Team, including those going to the Tokyo Olympics in July, will be appearing, as will be Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting writer Mark Rushall, who is the British Sailing Team’s Olympic strategist and will be giving a talk on how the Rules of Sailing have changed in the recent World Sailing update.

Visitors wil be able to explore the exhibition halls and connect with boat builders, sailing clubs, classes and holiday companies and more.

Despite being virtual, exhibitors will still be able to showcase their products, offer exclusive discounts and communicate with visitors at their stands.

Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting will be returning as the official media partner. Publisher Simon Temlett said: “We’re passionate about supporting established and upcoming sailing events, so we are delighted to be the official media partner of the RYA Dinghy Show 2021, which is the showcase event for dinghy sailors and watersports enthusiasts in the UK. Having supported the Dinghy Show for many years, we are looking forward to meeting show visitors in the new virtual format.”

Long term show exhibitors and supporters Suzuki Marine are confirmed as the official sponsor continuing a 10-year association with the Dinghy Show.

Mark Beeley, Head of Marine & ATV for Suzuki GB said, “We are thrilled to be continuing our long-standing support of the Dinghy Show and applaud the RYA for putting on a virtual show in the absence of a physical event. We are excited about the possibilities that this opens up and we are looking forward to showcasing our range of ultimate outboards and highlighting their credentials for use on safety or coaching boats in conjunction with some of our boat builder partners. We hope to see you there!”

RYA Shows and Promotions Manager Celia Edgington concluded: “We’re really grateful to our sponsors for supporting the virtual show this year. Of course, nothing will replace the atmosphere of a physical event, however we’re excited to be able to offer a Dinghy Show that’s free of charge to visitors and completely accessible to people across the globe”.

“Our time on the water is more precious than ever, and we’re now in the process of booking some exciting speakers to share their expert advice, top tips and even adventure tales. The show will be available from all devices and has no limit on the number of times you log in, so sailing fans can enjoy the talks and coaching sessions that interest them most and connect with exhibitors from wherever they are.”
