Class Associations are probably too busy worrying about a return on investment from an antiquated RYA car boot sale project in London at the tail end of winter, than seeing an opportunity to be at one of the UK's most beautiful central waters, at a time of year that makes sailing and associated watersports look such a damn idyllic way to spend your free time.

 on a positive note, glass half full chap me, at least people won't be exposed to the fragmented nature of dinghy sailing with multiple manufacturers and various class associations.  If RS are the only ones, then at least dinghy sailing will be represented by a brand that is forward thinking and inclusive, with products and finance actually available to make the most of the remaining summer.

That's the thing, the people that go to that show, see something and want to buy it, like now, there and then, not like that nice fast Streaker from Boatyards at Beer, order now maybe get it in November and you wonder why the sport is f**ked.

The NWF also has some cracking bargains... I've bought several sails there over the years and a couple of booms.
