Bishop Skinner Marine celebrating 30 years in partnership with the RYA

This years’ RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show (04-05 March, Alexandra Palace, London) promises to be a special one for Bishop Skinner Marine as we celebrate 30 years in partnership with RYA.

Kicking off the celebrations in style, Bishop Skinner will host a champagne reception on our stand (F4) at 3.00pm, Saturday 04 March. Sarah Treseder, Chief Executive of RYA will toast the occasion, joined by fellow directors of RYA and Bishop Skinner Marine. Join us on the stand to help celebrate the occasion.

Paul Birch, Managing Director, Bishop Skinner Marine commented: “We are extremely proud of our long standing and collaborative relationship with the RYA.  It has allowed us to jointly develop specialist sailing and travel insurance products to suit member needs, including more recently the likes of stand-up paddleboards, as well as supporting schemes such as the John Merricks Sailing Trust.  The RYA membership feedback has allowed us to be-spoke their insurance needs for the past 30 years.”

Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager added: “Bishop Skinner being a long standing and valued Reward Partner to the RYA have demonstrated time and time again that they have our Members welfare first and foremost in mind when unfortunate incidents arise.”

This year also sees Bishop Skinner return to the extremely popular Dinghy Show Treasure Hunt, so if you’re taking part be sure to visit the stand (F4) and collect your free sailing themed gift! And if the treasure hunt isn’t enough, you will also have the chance to take part in not one but two fantastic competitions.

Competitions galore

Take part in the ‘Guess how many balls in the Bug’ competition, in partnership with Laser, and you could win either a Zhik jacket (Saturday) or Dry Robe (Sunday).  All you need to do to take part is guess how many balls are in the Laser Bug - the nearest guess wins!  Drop back to the stand at 4.00pm each day when the winner will be announced.  (Prizes can be collected on the stand or posted to the winners.)

Bishop Skinner will also be giving 10 lucky winners a £30 discount off their dinghy or boat insurance.  Just pop your name in the hat and it could be you!
