I am a member of a sailing club and would prefer other activities to be a park for kids and picnic area, tv lounge for bad weather, that's it really.

Thanks all for the comments. I have only found a couple of clubs that offer special reduced membership for SUPs. The vast majority seem to lump SUP/Canoe/Kayak use into the same category as windsurfers and require full membership. (Graeme makes a good point about the downside of that.) The exception is Radio Controlled Yachting: where is it available it is usually a special category.

I'm in favour of SUPs at dinghy clubs, but they have to be non-voting and there solely to act as skittles for passing sailors to knock into the water for bonus race-points. And the SUPers are prohibited from defending themselves in any way. It might even make sailing a spectator sport.

Fab100,
I would add, sailors get extra points if you can get them with a gybe, whack the boom over
