The West Hall will feature an exhibition of Mirrors through the ages so take a look and you might even be able to spot your old boat!

There are also loads of prizes up for grabs from the many exhibitors’ competitions and prize draws taking place throughout the weekend.

Pin your favourite sailing photo to the Harken ‘Cool Wall’ on stand G30 and you could be the proud owner of up to £400 of Harken vouchers. If you fancy getting away then France Leisure Holidays will be running a free prize draw giving away a week’s holiday in Western France on stand A10.

For beginners or those looking to get involved in the sport, your local sailing club or training centre is the perfect place to start. Find out what the clubs in your local area can offer; from training courses and taster sessions to volunteering opportunities and social events.
