Volvo has added title sponsorship for the RYA Dinghy Show to their current sponsorship portfolio of British sailing. The deal sees Volvo Cars UK supporting the show for the next 3 years. Volvo has been involved with the show since 2000 through their support of the RYA’s youth training programmes.

“We are delighted to be working with the RYA again and with the show dedicated to dinghy sailors. The RYA Volvo Dinghy Show provides a great platform to expand our brand’s appeal, showcase our cars and features which suit the sailing community so well,”
The show provides dinghy sailors of all ages and abilities with the latest boats, kit, along with coaching sessions and advice from experts, including Olympic class sailors, all under one roof. Volvo has been involved with the show since 2000 through their support of the RYA’s youth training programmes.
