Where will Sailing Take you? RYA Dinghy Show 2020

The RYA Dinghy Show 2020, in conjunction with Yachts and Yachting, returns to Alexandra Palace over the weekend of 29th February and 1st March. The theme of the show for 2020 is ‘A World of Opportunity – Where will Sailing take you?’

Given Duncan’s history as a Topper squad coach in Scotland, Sailingfast have got back in touch with some of his previous junior sailors or ‘squadies’ and find out what kind of sailing adventures they have been on since they left the squad.

Not only is this an exercise in making Duncan feel really old (!), we discovered it was a really interesting topic of conversation. I’m delighted to report, despite all the doom and gloom surrounding the future of our sport, most of the former squadies are still sailing. Some have turned their passion for sailing into a career, others still enjoy it as a hobby.

Who did we speak to?

We sent a list of questions to a handful of different people to record a video interview for us. Some are based in the UK, some are not, some sail dinghies, some sail yachts, some girls, some guys – the only thing they have in common is that they were once in the Topper Squad in Scotland.

What did we ask?

You will have to tune in to our blog and social media channels to find out…
The first interview will be released later this week.
