RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show – What to see?

Allen at the 2022 Dinghy Show

It’s been two long years since we last welcomed watersports enthusiasts onto our stand at what is now called the RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show and we cannot wait to once again talk boats and boat bits with you!

For the first time, the RYA Dinghy and Watersports Show will be held under the roof of Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre over the weekend of 26th & 27th February. We will of course be exhibiting and you can find us on stand D22. 

We’ve got so much information to share from the past two years, but here are some of the highlights you can expect if you do visit us at the show.

Firstly, what is a back to back block? 

Our back to back blocks feature two sheaves, both with our patented dynamic bearing technology. The sheaves face opposite directions to allow two control lines to run at a maximum of 180 degrees to each other. Held together with strong stainless steel side straps and nylon mouldings ensures the block will not separate even under two very high opposing loads.
