Nick, Kate, Dylan and Annie will officially open the show on Saturday when they cut the ribbon and sound the starters’ horn, before taking part in main stage talks, leading coaching sessions, handing out prizes, signing autographs as well as trying their hand at some of the shows interactive activities including; the model boat pool, the Magic Marine Trapezing Wall, Holt Blow Boat Challenge, Marlow Ropes Splicing and the RYA Volvo Sail for Gold Game throughout the day.

On the main stage at 10.30 (Saturday and Sunday), Nick will be sharing his knowledge on rounding the windward and leeward marks in the ‘Get the best from your Laser’ talk. At midday it’s Annie and Kate’s turn to hit the main stage when they shares their tips about what’s involved in making it to the top in the ‘Going for Gold’ talk and chat about 2012 and beyond.

Over in the coaching area (Panorama Hall) at 14.00, rising 49er star Dylan Fletcher will be pairing up with Kate Macgregor to share their knowledge in ‘Trapezing Tips’.

On Sunday Nick is back on the main stage for his insightful and informative Laser talk and is joined for the day by 2012 Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas, 2012 Olympic silver medallist Luke Patience, double Olympic silver medallist Joe Glanfield and 2012 Olympic / Team Volvo sailor, Lucy Macgregor.

In the coaching area it’s Lucy Macgregor’s turn to try on the harness and demo some top trapezing tips when she joins 470 sailor Joe Glanfield for the Trapezing Tips coaching session, with Helena giving her best advice for getting a good racing start at 15.00.
