Shirley Robertson to co-host Dinghy Show

Shirley Robertson will co-host the 2019 RYA Dinghy Show Shirley Robertson will co-host the 2019 RYA Dinghy Show

Double Olympic gold medallist Shirley Robertson OBE will join forces with sailing presenter and journalist Matt Sheahan and match racing world champion and Olympic sailor Annie Lush to host the RYA Dinghy Show 2019.

Shirley and Matt will also team up to host expert speakers on the Main Stage and Knowledge Zone throughout the show.  

“I have raced all kinds of boats from tiny dinghies to massive multi million pound superyachts, but my true passion will always be firmly routed in dinghies – it’s where it all begins,” said Shirley.

A Dinghy Show first, this year the Great Hall will have a dedicated host for the popular Sailors’ Corner, Women’s Sailing Hub and class association stages.

The theme of this year’s show is #MyDinghyTribe – celebrating the different ‘tribes’ and diversity within the dinghy sailing community. 

The show will take place at Alexandra Palace, London, on the weekend of March 2 – 3 2019 with more than 150 exhibitors, class associations and sailing clubs exhibiting.
