Do you have a burning sailing question? Want to know how to get started in the sport, or simply want to better your skills before the racing season? You can ask the experts at this weekend’s RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show where seven top British Sailing Team talents will be on hand to share their top tips and tricks at the Alexandra Palace (1-2 March).

On Saturday (1 March) 49er European Champion Dylan Fletcher and Paralympic bronze medallist and five-time SKUD World Champion Alexandra Rickham will officially open the show, now in its 63rd year, with Fletcher’s fellow 49er sailors Dave Evans and Ed Powys, 2.4mR sailor Megan Pascoe and Laser Radial sailor Chloe Martin also calling in to offer their professional advice.

Rickham, Martin and Fletcher will be visiting the joint RYA Youth Programme and Volvo Car UK stand (stand C8 in the Grand Hall) at 1130, 1230 and 1430hrs respectively where you can pick their brains, and that of the RYA staff and representatives, on getting the best out of your racing at whatever level, while you can also put your virtual racing skills to the test with the RYA Volvo Sail for Gold Game.
