Join us this weekend (27-28 February) at the virtual RYA Dinghy Show presented by Suzuki. With a full agenda of expert talks and coaching sessions, plus two exhibition halls hosting just over 100 exhibitors, there's plenty to keep you entertained all weekend and buzzing for the season ahead.

Register for free here to join us at the show.

Visitors will be able to enter the virtual lobby and explore from 10am on Saturday and with so much on offer, here is how you can prepare for your weekend at the RYA Dinghy Show.

Suzuki main stage and knowledge zone

The Suzuki Main Stage and Knowledge Zone will be home to world-class dinghy sailors and leading experts who'll be sharing their top tips, answering your questions and getting you up to speed on all things dinghy sailing, whether you're interested in racing or cruising.

"With so much to see on the stages and the exhibitor stands, we encourage you to take a look in advance to see which sessions you won't want to miss. You can register and enter the show at any time over the weekend and there's no limit on the number of times you log in, so you can pop back in to catch your favourites" explains RYA Shows and Promotions Manager Celia Edgington.

Find the full talks schedule on the Dinghy Show website

Exhibition halls

Discover everything you need to get back out on the water with boats, clothes, kit, holidays, training, equipment and more from over 100 Dinghy Show exhibitors. Listed here are the live talks, clinics and demos you can join on their stands.

"We're delighted to have such a fantastic range of exhibitors supporting the virtual show this year. You can chat with them directly or just browse their booths to download brochures, watch videos and purchase products. Don't be shy- experts will be on hand to help with enquiries throughout the weekend" Celia continues.

Find more information and browse the full list of exhibitors ahead of your visit to the show.

Also not to be missed..

Although a virtual event will be different, you'll still be able to 'search' for your sailing friends visiting the show and chat with them in the Social Hub.

There are also prizes to be won through the Dinghy Show Leaderboard and the more exhibitor stands, talks and areas of the show that you visit, the more points you win! Visitors with the highest number of points are in for a chance to win prizes and the top prize is a Suzuki DF2.5 Outboard.

Meanwhile younger show visitors can explore and win great prizes with a virtual treasure hunt by searching for 10 hidden treasure chests around the show. Also, don't miss the RS Kids Takeover with prizes up for grabs, activities and quizzes to keep your young sailors entertained all weekend.

No Dinghy Show would be complete without award presentations and the virtual show includes RYA and Yachts & Yachting Club of the Year 2021, the Concours d'Elegance, live eSailing Winter Club Championship final and competitions throughout the weekend.

Virtual RYA Dinghy Show Guide

Your 2021 Show Guide includes everything you need to plan your visit including weekend highlights, a full talk schedule and exhibitor list plus advice and information on how to use the vFairs platform and navigate the show.

"We're really looking forward to the event this weekend which we hope will be a fantastic opportunity to spend a couple of days bringing the dinghy sailing community together and looking ahead to another fantastic season out on the water" concludes Celia Edgington.
