Imagine if you joined all of these. No wonder each of these is trying very hard to get our money. How many people actually are members of the first 2 whic hwe are told by each to be essential if you sail.



I'm a member of the class association, RYA and sailing club. The RYA doesn't do a bad job given the diversity of membership, but I do think the're a bit distant and out of touch with the average club sailor. Class associations are brillant - just think what they could do and how much cheaper it would be if they had a larger membership. However, it is very difficult to sell the benefits to the average sailor who is able to free ride on those who attend open meetings and nationals.

I think the first two are pretty important and if you can afford it deserve your support. I also think if you sail on the sea you should at least donate a few pounds to the RNLI.

Compared to a lot of leisure activities sailing is not really that expensive if you do it regularly. Not cheap, I admit, but how much is a season ticket to Man U? or a few pop concerts?

It might also be worth noting that those of us who are volunteer instructors often pay more than the average member and frequently sail less.
