https://ryadinghyshow.vfairs.com/en/registration" rel="nofollow - Sorry should have put thiis link Far be it from me to be the bloody RYA marketing department, but there you go anyway. I meant who, which boat brands are going, I got this from an RS ad, just wondered if anyone's bothered to invite class associations, you remember them, they used to be what the show was about.

I guess we could stage our own class zoom meeting and stage our own event.

Just go to Rya web and register, it’s not difficult. Also there this a list of the class associations and companies have signed up so far , plus an explanation of how it’s works and what hosting platform is being used. 

Have seen advertisements for the show from the Rya on Y & Y and all over Facebook .
All the normal things are there, class stands, companies selling stuff and people giving talks .

Always part of the dinghy show is the release of the PN list and our annual stream of complaints about the system. Don’t expect that will happen.

Re the dinghy show I presume just lots more content, talks etc. Say what you like about the RYA but they have done some good stuff over the past year, the rules webinars where good. So yes I’ll be virtual going and hopefully on the water the weekend after.

classes are certainly invited. Phantoms were looking for a video tour of a recent boat for the concours de elegance. Luckily one of the guys with a newish boat his good lady is a pro photographer and has a better video camera than me the handshake king!

Well that was disappointing, I appreciate it’s the first year but... joined a talk and it wasn’t as billed all ‘how did you cope with lockdown’ Sunny day so got on with other stuff as it looked like I could watch other talks later. Come in now and there doesn’t seem like I can replay, at the moment, sure they will be released in the future. Found the interface clunky and just searching easier. Not that many classes had stands and most just linked to their website. The notable exception was the Streaker stand which had the thing I go to the show for, video tour of a latest boat and then a more upgraded club racer boat. Well done the Streakers. So 5/10 for the effort given the circumstances.

I shall go look at the Streaker stand tomorrow, thanks, as I too was underwhelmed. And the sun was out as you say.

I probably should have watched the introduction, was getting very frustrated until I realised if you scroll down each page they have a write up and tabs with what the class is ‘showing’

Not overwhelmed, but due credit for trying to produce something covid safe rather than just giving up.

Never realised Jack Holt was still designing boats in 1975, haven't seen one, looks good.

Wow that really surprises me . If someone says they haven’t seen a British moth or lightning 368 I would not be surprised, but not a streaker .
Do you sail on the salty stuff by any chance ? Smile

Never seen a lightning 368 or a British moth, either.

Not many people have LOL  

It’s one of the problems with sailing in the so many people never look any further than the normal suspects ( laser/solo/aero etc) when looking for a singlehander .

Enjoyed looking at Streakers, though they didn't go very old on their whizz through designs (no kit boats at all), or wood hulls of any sort.

Connect to Coaching was really good, nice triple act. Coaching going in a great direction for clubs, now.

Dougal and 70 years of boats...I even agreed with some of them!

Well, 505, Fireball, simply classics, would have won any decade. Split away somewhat after that! Laser, well head says yes, but heart, for the UK, says Topper. 80s, just ignore it, B14 very niche, Laser 2 a 70s boat. Even designed in the 70s, if it took a year to get over here. 90s, 49er, surely? Blew everything else away. 2000s, the Feva revitalised junior sailing. 2000s, Red Paddle 10'6" SUP.

Err Red paddle 10’6” or even a 10’8 SUP is not or ever will ever be a dinghy . And I say this a man who has red 10’8” sitting in it bag in the corner of his bedroom together with two British moth sails LOL

Kind of the point. Sailing clubs are expanding their remit to bring in a new generation of sailors. Adding SUP, open water swimming and whatever else to what sailing clubs offer could keep the sport alive.

Otherwise, yes, the Aero appears to have hit the spot with many sailors.

Was interested to hear Dougals answer at the end as to which of the boats he saw as his favourite!

We put in weeks of work into making videos for this event rather than just linking to our website, they can be found here (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnx2vHd-coOFWqBnXYB4rmQ/videos) if you are interested. Will be interested to see the stats from the RYA as to the number of visitors to our CA stall at the show but I think we had more than 500 views of the materials we made for the event.

One issue I had is that popping onto a stand and chatting to the person there even if you are just shooting the breeze feels natural. Clicking on the chat button when not actually interested in joining the fleet, just liking the boat, doesn't feel quite right.

But on the other hand, I didn't get distracted chatting and miss all the talks so that's a plus!

Looking forward to a real show next year, fingers crossed.

Went back in and looked at H2 - clearly a lot of effort has gone into your stand. H2s are truly lovely boats and having seen then sail well a true thoroughbred (Nick Craig narrowly dipping my stern in his new one was heart on mouth moment- one of the last sailors before lockdown) what out of interest is the minimal crew weight?

Thanks Tink - we were happy to see that over 700 people had viewed our videos which justified some of the effort! In our fleet the lightest helms are 70kg and the heaviest is 95kg (me) - from talking to Jim Hunt the rig was designed around 13 stone but the hull carries weight really well as its very wide and the lighter guys can depower with a powerful kicker and the ability to rake the rig whilst going upwind. I wish I was around 82kg!

Went and had a quick look at the H2, too. Nice selection of things to watch, and hopefully they will get many more views as a stand alone set of promo videos.

Sadly, the Harrier is more in my price bracket.

The comment “may still be viewed for the next 30 days meant that my viewing after 5pm last night will have pushed you over the 1000 mark.  Well done

I didn't register beforehand since I knew the weather would let us be outdoors taking down trees but now I find it is available afterwards but you can't register anymore!

Try directly on You Tube
That’s what I did on the TV, so the registering I don’t think was connected?
