The halls will be packed to the rafters with some spectacular boats from the old time classics to the very latest in design, including fantastic displays from the Miracle and 505 classes, both celebrating special anniversaries, in the west corridor.

There are loads of activities for the kids too including the Holt Blow Boat Challenge, ‘Bob the Buoy’ Treasure Hunt, RS sailing simulator and much more.
