Barton Marine is the must-see Exhibitor at the RYA Dinghy Show to discover the exciting new hardware launches for 2023 - and enter the competitions that give you the chance to win prizes and equipment vouchers!

Barton will be exhibiting on stand O14 in Farnborough from the 25-26 February with a full crew of Barton sailors displaying a wide range of Barton products. The Barton hardware experts and sailing enthusiasts will be on hand all weekend to provide advice on the right products and rigging systems to ensure you have a fun and successful season afloat, without breaking the bank!

Come and experience the Windicator which provides a 100% accurate wind direction indication in just 2 knots of wind. Available in five versions, including dinghy specific models optimized with mast or goose neck fittings for Optimists, Lasers, Aeros and Toppers. It is designed to last with a highly durable construction, whilst weights have been kept to a minimum (22g-63.5g). The Windicator has been put through its paces on the racing circuit by many top New Zealand sailors for over thirty years and is raved about for its precision and ease of use.

The new 6:1 Topper Downhaul Assembly and 6:1 Pico Kicking Strap Assembly are now available. Easy to install with everything required included in one package, these kits are designed to provide extra purchase for those who find the standard system a struggle or who want maximum power in a breeze when club racing or training. Barton has a range of ready to fit kits for Laser sailors as well. Talk to the team at the show to find out more.

Sometimes the simplest widgets can be overlooked when getting everything ship shaped for the water, but they often make all the difference. That's why Barton have expanded their range of dinghy support parts with new Rope Stoppers, Lacing Buttons, Lacing Hooks and 50mm Toe Strap Bridges. On sale in a variety of sizes and colours.

Alongside new products, three Barton competitions are available to enter at the Dinghy Show. 'Beat the Barton Block Clock' is back pitting show visitors against each other to see who can achieve the quickest time assembling a Barton block. For those with less nimble fingers, 'Guess the Number of Rope Stoppers in the Jar' provides a more sedate opportunity to win as well.

Finally, if two chances to win weren't enough, Barton are launching a new Photography Competition, which will provide year-round opportunities to win. The launch category is best dinghy photo. Send in your Dinghy Sailing images, showing off the Barton gear you have installed and how it helps you out on the water. If you can feature a Barton Racing sticker (available at the show) then that's even better! Visit the Barton stand for full details.

Whether you push to the limits racing for line honours or prefer the cruising lifestyle, whether you are learning to sail or respected as the local guru, the Barton dinghy range is perfect for everyone.

Make sure your dinghy is in top shape for the season ahead with Barton. Visit stand O14 at the RYA Dinghy Show or to check out the range beforehand.
