My main problem would have been that I bought a boat before I was looking for a club, and it hadn't occurred to me that there could possibly any restriction to sailing a certain class at a given club. If I had been told sorry, you can't sail your boat here, that would have put me right off sailing, I think!

Are there any clubs left that prescribes classes. Last one I knew of was that one on the north circular.

A club with and adopted classes only policy is a group of people usually old who are bent on using a shotgun to blow off their own feet.

Budworth only runs one handicap race on Sundays, thereafter it is three class races. Handicap racing on Saturdays and Wednesdays, but only open to the club's adopted classes.

Do you want to compare the average turnouts at Budworth and South Staffs compared to your chosen clubs, Graeme?

I know Budworths's average number of boats on the water on a Sunday is significantly better than Leigh & Lowton's and it's not because Budworth is the better water to sail on.

It seems to me that many clubs operate in catchment areas shared with other clubs.
So there may be room in the market for a club that does things differently.
Each club often needs to find its own niche in the market.
