Most clubs have eccentric boats. They are at the back of the boat park with weeds growing round them.

We are in a very fortunate position where we can pay our subs in full on the due date and will do so. I recognise that others may not be so lucky. I would therefore hope that all Clubs including ours can be flexible about the collection of payments by either deferral or installments where required. We need to discourage people from resigning.

For some the boat parking space will be the leverage to renew as they have nowhere at home to keep their boat and I guess the 2nd hand market has all but collapsed?

My club have just advised that all on the water activity is now banned at the request of the local public health office. I have my Blaze at home so can do some much needed work on it but had not planned to sail for the moment as we are staying at home, partly because me and Mrs Spoons are both at higher risk and partly because minimising social contact makes sense to slow the spread of C19. 

My subs are paid for this year and while not being able to sail is a bit of a bummer I'll try my best to make good use of the time in other activities.

It's not entirely surprising, I have been a member of my club for 66 years on and off (on for 5 years, off for 57 and on again for the last 3 Ĺ  Wink )

I've paid mine not to sail, but then thats little different to any other year, I rarely get out on the water these days. I would want to help support the club by paying my subs but I'm lucky that I'm able to work from home at the moment and getting paid. If though I had lost my job, etc and sailing was a luxury then I may be forced to think otherwise, but it would be reluctantly as I was forced to. 
Everything I say is my opinion, honest

It'll be the floating members that we lose. The trouble is they are a signifiant source of many club's income.

This floating 25% are often the ones dodging duties and being less involved in the club anyway.

My view is that having a club with finances based on the "real" members might have to be more careful on spending but will be nicer.

Most clubs have dropped the old fashioned joining fee, desperate to get these floaters. How about all the clubs in an area getting together and reintroducing the joining fee and perhaps having a better chance of keeping the drifters and maybe showing them the advantage of involvment?
