Hyde is set to be a strong presence at the 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show, where the company will be exhibiting for the first time.
Hyde will be exhibiting at the forthcoming PSP Southampton Boat Show (September 14-23 2012), the first time the company has exhibited at the show. Hyde’s Sales and Marketing Director Richard Franks said: “Traditionally we have exhibited at the London Show, but Southampton has grown to such a point that we felt that we needed a stand. It is an ideal opportunity to catch up with our customers past, present and future.” As well as the Hyde Sails stand – F027 – there is plenty of other activity going on all week.
A number of Hyde’s specialist staff will be giving talks in special Boat Clinics, which will be taking place at the Live Sea theatre on Tuesday September 18 at 1100hrs and Wednesday September 19 at 1225hrs.
Boats to look out for
While a walk round any show will reveal a wide range of boats, from dinghies to cruiser-racers of boats sporting the famous ‘H’ logo on their sails, there are a number in particular which are worth a second look. A couple of Illusions will be sailing around off the marina, and Bavaria’s new B-One sportsboat will be both on display and sailing round as part of the Try a Boat initiative.
Match racing action
Hyde Sails is sponsoring the match racing which the RYA is putting on during the show, supplying 11 branded jibs for the RS Fevas that will be used for the competition.
Meet the team
While you might not be ready to buy a new boat right now, investing in a suit of sails can give your current craft a new lease of life. Not only is a great opportunity to get some expert advice about your existing sail wardrobe and your plans for the future, but it’s also your chance to benefit from Hyde’s amazing winter deals. If you would like to talk to meet with a Hyde sails representative during the Southampton Boat Show to discuss a new or outstanding quote, there will be a range of experts on hand during week, including representatives from many of our lofts - in recent years our network of lofts in the UK, and worldwide, has grown considerably, offering you technical support at local level.
