We're pleased to be exhibiting for a second time at the new home of the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show, Farnborough International Exhibition Centre, over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of February.

We will have a range of new products on display, as well as, a fully Allen-fitted Scorpion, which will be showcasing some of our latest flagship products.

NEW 40mm Dynamic Blocks.

The new range has been developed with performance keelboat and dinghy racers in mind. Built with a fresh new look and modern materials result in a block range that is super versatile and will soon be the go-to option for anyone looking to reduce friction and increase performance and reliability.

This new range is expected to be in stock in time for the UK summer sailing season.

XHL Blocks Go Double!

The XHL range of blocks continues to grow and this year you will be able to check out the newest editions to the family at the show.

A2022XHL - 20mm double XHL.

A2023XHL - 20mm double XHL with becket.

The growing loads on the ILCA vang have seen sailors pushing their existing hardware beyond its normal limits, which has led to top-level sailors wanting a block that can withstand the punishment without compromising on dynamic performance.

So, the first port of call was clearly a double-sheaved XHL. These new blocks have been over-engineered, to ensure a long-lasting high performance on any boat which requires a block to take working loads up to 600Kg.

Now available to pre-order.


ILCA Mainsheet Blocks

Another ILCA-themed product on display will be our new range of class legal mainsheet blocks specifically for the ILCA.

The blocks were launched back in September, and since have had great success at the front of the ILCA fleet. Which has led to many builders fitting the blocks as standard.

If you haven't had a chance to lay eyes on these, get to our stand to check out the full set!


For those of you who are attending the show and are looking to make some new hardware purchases, then you'll have a great selection of our products to choose from. Both Hartley Boats Chandlery and RS Sailing Store will have a large range of our products on sale.

However, should you require something that you can't find at the show, then come to our stand and grab yourself a coupon that will allow you to redeem free shipping for orders placed directly with us online.

Our friendly sales and technical team will be on hand across the weekend to answer all questions hardware related. And if you don't have any technical questions, they're happy to talk about sailing instead!

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand, I16.
