Clubs have had a hard 2 years. 

I think anything- however gentle- that encourages sailor to join  a club is good

Plenty of keyboard sailors on here who can be offended on their behalf it seems!


Quite the opposite if you read my words carefully!

As JimC says...

Incidentally, apart from being a part time 'keyboard sailor', I am member of a small friendly inland sailing club where I sail my Laser (ILCA) regularly when I am not doing open meetings sailing under their banner.
I have also recently started sailing a Dart 18 on the circuit under their banner even though I have never sailed it there or ever likely to since the water is unsuitable.

Wouldn't it be great to see a model yacht club become a challenger for the Americas Cup? Shades of the films 'Flight of the Pheonix' and 'Cool Running' put together!

With the Df65 and 95 model yachts being available at sensible price, my sailing club is joined by many other full sized clubs racing them. Model yacht racing is not just small ponds nowadays- and a great excuse to get out there in a mid winter storm

I am not offended by the alleged infringement, just a discussion between members who have run races, they are difficult enough without some knob thinking it's amusing to put any old crap down. I will continue taking part in this discussion regardless of whether certain posters think its anal, don't read if it offends you.

Perhaps a bit strong. There are two threads to this.

The first is that in RRS the entry is required to be from a member of an affiliated club or National Authority. That is not up for dispute and there are very sound reasons for the rule. I'm not sure the club in question actually must be mentioned on the entry form, but its probably good manners to do so. There's certainly no requirement that the club should sail dinghies in the RRS. If a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron wants to race in a Laser Open meeting at my club they'd be very welcome. .....


If it's an ILCA open meeting, there would be no requirement to be a member of a club, as you'd be required to be a member of the class association?

Reading the actual rules and talking about their requirements accurately might help some people.

When I was young we were all members of "Stoney-bridge Corinthians" and used to put it down as our club. As far as I know the club never existed, it was just a bit of fun that we giggled about at the bar. I cannot even recall why it was funny; we were students. We were all members of real clubs and until I read this post, I never imagined that anyone would even give the slightest bit of a damn. But hey, looks like I was wrong, people do get upset about the weirdest stuff.

Stoneybridge Corinthian Yacht Club came out of a few Scottish sailors who travelled down south to sail more than they sailed at home at the time. Stoneybridge was a reference to the Absolutely comedy show on C4. The Corinthian Yacht Club bit was some gentle mocking of some higher class YCs from lowly dinghy sailors from small clubs.

  

Some people got worked up about it but a lot of fuss over what was a bit of harmless fun IMO.
