36 out on Sunday. Might not be quite as healthy as it was a few years ago, but not bad for a small club.

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.

I had to look up Budworth, and noted lots of bellended sails on the club header pic, where we have just the one at our equivalent lake Redoubt, but, you can't compare a population centre as large as Cheshire with the lower reaches of South East Kent and it's total lack of hinterland. So per head of local population within an hours drive, I bet our ratio is probably a lot greater, and until you 'open' the doors to more modern classes how would you know how effective/ineffective that policy is?
Our place is/was pretty Miracle/Streaker/Solo dominated but that doesn't stop us enjoying ourselves sailing nice boats and at some point the powers that be must have had to recognise that what they were sailing isn't for everyone however much they try to force their choice upon us.

However if circumstance forced me through work or other trial, to have to live near Budworth I probably wouldn't let your dogma force me to stop sailing and would suffer whatever tripe I had to pilot in order to continue, would I be happy? No, would it matter? No, better to sail something than not at all.
