RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2014 - There are just four more days until the start of the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2014, when Alexandra Palace, London becomes the centre of all things dinghy sailing.

The show, in association with Yachts & Yachting, takes place over the weekend of 01-02 March when hundreds of exhibitors, in some 12,000 sq. metres of halls will be showcasing all the very latest boats, books, kit and more.

There are some fantastic talks and presentations lined up with expert analysis and insight on the Main Stage, while over at the interactive Coaching sessions some of dinghy sailing’s leading experts and coaches will be sharing their top tips on a host of topics from getting started and sailing fitness, to rig tuning, tactics and racing rules.

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.
