Sailboat 2003 Information

News of what's going
Saturday March 1, 10.00-18.00 Sunday March 2, 10.00-17.00 Alexandra Palace, London (Nearest Tube, Wood Green) For information on tickets please click here for the relevant page on the RYA site. The Theme This year’s theme is “Talk it, Buy It, Live It”. The Show really is a precious opportunity for members of Clubs and Classes to get together and discuss the important issues of the day. It also gives everyone the chance to pick up some pre-season bargains and to get involved in the two great sports of dinghy sailing and windsurfing. Panorama Hall The Sailboat and Windsurf Show is now in its 52nd year. For eight of those years the Show has been staged at London’s Alexandra Palace but, for the past few years, it’s been a bit of tight squeeze! Well, the good news is that, for 2003, the Show is expanding into a brand new Hall and now offers three Halls of boats, boards, kit and entertainment! So, make sure you visit the Panorama Hall. This new light and airy exhibition space offers amazing views over London. Visitors will be able to catch up with RYA Coaching, Training, Racing, Legal, Technical and Sailability. You’ll find them all at the new RYA stand. This third hall will also be the venue for one of the new features of the Show, RYA Forums. Set in a new, seated area, and based on the popular Internet discussion rooms, each session will feature a brief presentation on a “hot” topic. This will be followed by an opportunity for visitors, who work and play in sailing and windsurfing, to come together for some lively debates. RYA Clubs’ Conference The Show will be once again host the RYA Clubs’ Conference; a half-day programme of updates on key issues for all those involved in the administration of dinghy and windsurfing Clubs.
