Hi Everybody,

I,m after a bit of advise on local club racing. I am a member of a small
Sailing club in leicester and own a varied selection of different sailing dinghys.

What I would like to know is could I take one of these to another club pay for the day and enter there racing, purely as a one off.

I know I can do the open meetings but looking for more of a spur of the moment choice.

Would this be allowed and also could it upset anybody else's yearly results.

Thanks in advance,
Rich.

I'm sure most would welcome you with open arms. As for mucking up results, enough members only do one or two races a series, so I can't see it being an issue.

Most clubs allow people to join in up to 6 times a year without being a member. after that they may have a day membership.
good luck

My club only allows 6 daily sails a year too, it's not free though, think it's 8.

I was just looking to do this at a club halfway between me and a Blaze sailing mate, they will allow a member to sign you in as a guest but you can't sail out own boat outside of open meetings (you can sail a members boat or a club boat).

Thanks for your help chaps.
Seems like its not quite straightforward so probaly will just stick to day sailing with the odd open meeting.
I have e-mailed a dozen local clubs I'll report back there replies.
Cheers
Richard

Does no harm to ask, many clubs will be glad to have you as a guest I'm sure.

Imagine most clubs run the old tried and tested method of allowing several visits per year but no sailing your own boat and at a standing members invite, then limited numbers of day membership at a nominal rate.

Probably true but still worth asking. And many places offer a day ticket (though mostly sailing centres rather than clubs). There should be plenty of opportunities to go sailing without joining a club if that is what you want.

Well I e-mailed eight clubs to see if I could join in with the club racing while using a day ticket.

Only one club had the decency to reply, and strangely that was from Rutland water where I was a member for 20 years, so I almost knew the answer.
It doesn't seem to be a problem with them just turn up early and introduce myself to the race officer.

I even paid one club for a refresher course that after 4 weeks still haven't sent a confirmation, lucky I used PayPal because I'll be taking that back in the morning.

A bit disappointing all round really but I,'ll sort something.

Cheers All,
Rich.
