Dinghy show 2020 the last one at Ally Pally.
There were rumours flying around all day Saturday that this was to be the last show in North London, so it came as no real surprise when it became official on Sunday morning. The show is on the move after 25 very successful years at Ally Pally. I am still a little unsure that going south is a good idea, I hope it does not put off the large contingent that travel down from the north.
The show was busy and well organised, this year my boat of the show was the Ovington Int 14, interestingly in 1985 we brought a 14 from David Ovington at the Crystal Palace venue. Sadly he is no longer with us but his company lives on and so does their ethos of producing quality racing dinghies.
