Since the announcement that Weymouth will host the 505 World Championships in 2016, interest in this International Class has exploded. Many of the UK’s top dinghy sailors have already begun their campaigns and others have boats on order.
During the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show (28 February – 1 March, Alexandra Palace, London) two multiple World and National Champions, Ian Pinnell and Holger Jess (pictured), will be on the 505 Class Association stand (C86) for Q&A sessions for the benefit of those visiting – all are welcome and bring your questions about the class, boat construction, boat tuning and race tactics.
Also on the stand will be displayed the very latest in boat design and boat set up and our experts will be on hand to explain how the boat works and how the boat is adjusted for different sailing conditions.
