The RYA has a whole host of events and activities lined up for this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show (12-21 September), from launches and workshops to fantastic competitions and prize givings.

To kick start the week, on Saturday (13) at 14.00 pop along to the RYA stand (JO66) and help us congratulate the winners of the RYA ilovesailing calendar competition who will be visiting the show to collect their winner’s prizes and see the 2015 calendar for the first time. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase your very own copy of the 2015 calendar and the first 100 people to buy a copy will also receive one of our much coveted ilovesailing rubber ducks!

Later at 15.00 we will be celebrating the launch of the RYA’s latest title, the RYA Advanced Powerboat Handbook. Join us for a glass of bubbly and have a chat with the book’s author, Paul Glatzel. Purchase of copy of the new title either at the show or via the RYA web shop and you will be entered in to a free prize draw to win an RYA Advanced Powerboat Course, courtesy of Paul Glatzel’s RYA Training Centre, Powerboat Training UK.

As we head in to Sunday (14) the engines will be revving as the 28 young finalists from across the country gear up for the grand final of the Honda RYA Youth RIB Championship. Putting their expert driving skills to the test in a timed boating handling challenge, by the end of the day the top youngster in each age group (8-12 and 13-16) will be crowned. Make sure you come along and cheer them on.

Monday is ‘Digital Day’ on the RYA stand. Throughout the day we will have a whole host of RYA experts available for you to talk to about all things digital, giving demonstrations and answering any questions you may have. From RYA eBooks and eLearning programmes, to digital Training Almanacs, the new online chart plotter, ePacks, SafeTrx app and so much more.

'The aim of Digital Day is to showcase how the RYA’s is using the latest technology and modern media to improve training courses, knowledge distribution and its publications. We’ll be demonstrating how this technology can assist students in their learning and how modern media can be an invaluable teaching aid to instructors', commented Craig Burton, RYA Training Resource Manager.

We also have two fantastic competitions for you to take part in. The Green Blue, the environment project of the Royal Yachting Association and British Marine Federation, have teamed up with AkzoNobel to give one lucky visitor the chance to win five litres of International Paint’s Micron Extra, in a colour of your choice from their colour card, offering you the highest level of antifouling protection throughout the season.
