Is that true? How can anyone be so arrogant and dictatorial and expect people to pay for the privilege, I wonder if their members all know that?

It's exactly the attitude that keeps this sport inaccessible.

THis is great news, maybe if there is a fleet at Grafham we could do a winter traveller series.  i know there will be 3/5 of us at Oxford (Jimbo is that right)    So maybe we could alternate weeks?  Be good to help local fleets grow.  

Also anyone planning on doing the Global Warm up series over the winter?  Maybe a good time to start talking to the great lakes to negotiate a handicap (earlier rather than being cobbled last minute)

There was something on the Aero thread and a poster on the RS website giving details of the demo tour.
....


Have you got a link for the poster, I can't find anything?

Is all I can find, looks like a grab from somewhere as the original PDF has been taken off.

And no worries about not letting me know, I would probably have been too busy changing nappies to be fair.

I find it somewhat incongruous that a sailing club would defend a fleet to the exclusion of all others, including a 21st century boat that its members apparently have an interest in, whilst at the same time flouting class rules and potentially destroying that same fleet.

Just for clarifiaction we were told that it would be a members' only day and, in fact, we had to request permission to give a non member the chance to test the D-Zero early on the Saturday morning. In fact the Commodore of GWSC told me that the open days are only open to members and members friends/contacts and not to the general public. I am very clear on the mandate and what was said
