It was an idea that grew when keen sailor, Sonja McGinn, couldn’t find a lightweight, foldable, stylish, durable and affordable carry-all for all the family’s sailing needs. So she designed her own!

Now Sonja’s SACQUA storage and loading solution returns to the RYA Dinghy Show for the second successive year after enjoying an incredible response at its 2017 show debut.

A SACQUA is more than just a very big bag. It holds up to 20kg, seals tight with velcro and comes with a carabiner clip feature to attach securely to a boat. Yet it’s so lightweight it folds flat to the dimensions of an A3 envelope and packs wafer-thin into luggage or the tightest spaces on board.

There will be six SACQUA bags – three per day – up for grabs to win at the RYA Dinghy Show so visit Stand D24 to find out more!

Sonja said: “SACQUA has a volume of 70 litres and holds everything; all the wet, sandy stuff, life vests, wetsuits, rigging, even the daggerboard of a small dinghy and it’s perfect for windsurfing too! The velcro seal is ideal for cold, wet fingers or gloves when racing and there’s no stuck zips.

“If you own or charter yachts, the SACQUA is also great for loading and storage, whether heading overseas on holiday or simply to the coast for the weekend. Stocking up whilst at anchor is made easy by clipping the foldable SACQUA to the RIB to zoom ashore and fill up with provisions.”

SACQUA is an official RYA Reward Partner so all RYA members get a 10% discount on mail orders plus free postage worldwide, in addition to 25% off two SACQUA bags at the RYA Dinghy Show.

At last year’s RYA Dinghy Show, the keenly-priced SACQUA bags generated such interest a number of clubs and classes invested in bags, which can be purchased and branded in bulk, as giveaways, prizes and registration packs for regattas.

The 2017 International Topper World Championships in France, the 2016 Laser Radial Youth World Championship in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland and the Offshore ‘Croissiere Blue’ Race from Antibes to Corsica are among the events where sailors received SACQUAs as a prize or gift.

Based between Dun Laoghaire, Ireland and Lymington UK, Sonja is a sailor, sea lover, boat owner and a mum of young dinghy sailors who loves yacht charter holidays and spends more time at sea than on land.

Sonja added: “SACQUA was new when we did last year’s RYA Dinghy Show. But we had phenomenal feedback, there was real goodwill and support, so we are excited to be growing the brand with new products later this year and to see everyone again at this year’s show!”
