If you are anywhere within reach of London, put it in your diary. With under a month to go until the doors open on the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2014 (01-02 March, Alexandra Palace, London), there are a whole host of competitions for you to get involved in, leading up to the show and during the event itself.

Before you even get to the show don’t miss out on your chance to win an RS Tera Dinghy worth £1,735.00 with the RS Tera Design a Sail competition.

As well as the winners dinghy in a new twist for 2014 RS Sailing will also loan a further two dinghies to the winner’s sailing club for the 2014 season (April – November) and if the winner isn’t a member of a sailing club will help arrange membership at their local sailing club for them and loan the dinghies to that club for the period.

The competition is open to anyone up to the age of 16 and all you need to do is download the entry form and get creative. Simply colour in the RS Tera, giving it a snazzy sail design and send your completed entry form back to the RYA by Monday 24 February 2014.
