Largs of course!
Plenty of deep water,
Plenty of team bases,
the old Oil Rig Yard at Hunterston,
Clydeports Terminal,
old NATO pier,
the diss-used docks at Greenock,
the old Oil Rig yard round at Tarbert,
2 Large Airports both capable of landing Antanov's on,
a Container Terminal for the container shipping,
3 Major road links,
plenty of EU grants for the begging,
a national sports centre,
More under used marinas than you know what to do with

Now tell me where else would you be able to host both the sailing and the associated infrastrucure in the UK?

Weymouth would struggle and so would the Solent!

The pond in my garden could host the infrastructure, great sailing venue as well (If you remove the shopping trolley)

I don't know it well enough!

A few plusses come to mind though:

For
Less bullsh*t
Men in kilts
Plenty of space
Beautiful backdrop for great piccis - and the light's great when it's
not raining!
The Scots are great at celebrating and enjoying themselves, even
when they lose (whould the AC inspire the Tartan Army though? Now
there's a question...)

But it's a long way from the South Coast/London... would make
sponsorship more difficult...

Gael i'm suprised the Y&Y swear o'meter didn't get you on this one also! 'bullsh*t'

After all kids could be reading this and Tiggers need to think about the broad spectrum of young impressionable minds, that make up your readership, they could be being warped with such language?

As for Kilts i'll show you mine if you show me yours?

Are you also admitting to the myth that South Coast sailing has a minoroty that ruin it for the majority by talking complete "Gael Explitife" when anywhere near a bar or crowded public place where they know others may be listening??
