Because they are an unbelievably inefficient organisation with absolutely dire customer service I am reliably informed by one of my ex reps and a Caterham owner.

In fact they should take up dinghy building, they'd fit right in.

Try the Sailing Anarchy forums. Its a brutal war zone there. Post there at your peril  ... Y&Y is mild by comparison.

The big advantage of SA is that they don't suffer fools gladly. I've never had anything like the level of personal abuse and accusations of corruption I've had here.

Which is surprising considering the high content of fools present on it, not entirely limited to the posters.
