Where are we heading?
1. BoatLife 2023
16th - 19th February at Birmingham’s NEC.
It has become the communities first UK boat show in the calendar after making its debut in 2022, hitting the ground running and bringing in the masses. This budding show aims to celebrate the love of life on the water and discover all things boating under one roof. In 2023, the show sees familiar names from the Dinghy World attending and building the dinghy lifestyle presence. The Rooster stand will be there in all its glory, showcasing our core products and some new to the collection including our DAME award winning Aquafleece Robe, and some much anticipated neoprene products! We look forward to interacting with a new audience, and hopefully catch up with some familiar faces along the way.
2. RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show 2023
25th - 26th February at Farnborough International.
We are back for our 23rd edition of the show! If you haven’t been to the Dinghy Show before, it’s a place where all our Dinghy friends from across the UK, and sometimes further, gather for one weekend of the year to catch up, check out the latest releases, listen to their sailing idol on stage and stock up on chandlery and gear for the year. The Rooster stand never fails to disappoint and this year we are bringing out the big guns. Come and check out our Aquafleece zone, our genius chandlery bar and exciting new products (alongside our first Dinghy Show sale rail). If you came to us last year, you may remember our ‘coming soon’ area… well the wait is over as some of those products will be available to take away on the day. As usual we will be launching a competition for a family pack of tickets and a Dinghy Show Rooster spending voucher - stay tuned to find out how to get involved over the next few weeks.
