British manufacturer of performance sailing hardware, Allen, will once again be exhibiting at the RYA Dinghy Show 29th Feb - 1st March, Alexandra Palace, London. Situated on stand B34 in The Great Hall, Allen will be hosting a bunch of exciting launches, competitions and showcasing a range of new and existing products.
