Prizes galore at the RYA Volvo Dinghy Show 2009

 

There’s a bounty of prizes awaiting visitors to the RYA Volvo Dinghy Show 2009, in association with Yachts and Yachting and Suzuki. From holidays and clothing to technical kit and dinghies too, you could kit yourself out for the new season – but you’ve got to be in it to win it!

Even before you hit the show, which takes place at Alexandra Palace on the 7th and 8th March, you could line yourself up for some top prizes. Simply by pre-booking your tickets you could be in with a chance of winning an RS Tera dinghy, courtesy of LDC Racing Sailboats and if you have the largest group booking you’ll win a 2.5hp outboard Suzuki engine for your club.

Then when you arrive at the show make sure you fill in the reverse of your ticket to enter the many free prize draws taking place on the main stage throughout the weekend (valid for pre-booked and on the door tickets). By simply popping your completed ticket in the boxes on either the RYA stand (Panorama Hall), Volvo stand (F38, West Hall) or the Sunsail stand (E6, West Hall), you could be in with the chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes; a Tacktick compass, Rooster Aqua Fleece, Ronstan Orbit Ratchet blocks or even a Sunsail Holiday.

Show sponsors Volvo are also running a fantastic competition to win a new Volvo car of your choice, seen by many as the perfect car for the sailing community. Simply visit the stand (F38) and fill in an entry form, it’s that easy.

And it doesn’t end there; there’s also a plethora of competitions and prize draws running throughout the weekend from some of the show’s 200 plus exhibitors.
