Danger of using postcodes is that unless club has a manned office you will usually get the secretarys home postcode or in the case of our club a po box in the middle of town ,

 

will lat and longs help with updates as I'm sure there will be many

56 00'38.16" N   4 45'40.79" W

Helensburgh Sailing Club

Good idea though

 

Just a bit o tuning needed.

I really must extend the coverage - we've got Northern Ireland at the moment...need to go south and fill in the rest!

If you're in the know - pass it on.

Great work!!

Few amends...

Papercourt - needs to go a smidge NE

Burghfield a tad SE to 51.428534, -1.063914

Littleton need to move 1 mile or so west to 51.396354, -0.475545

Spinnaker needs to move a smidge to 50.867247, -1.779742

you probably need to add Mudeford

not sure how you got the RORC rating office in New Milton when it's basically on the front in lymington as per postcode

Chichester YC is at 50.804097, -0.827563 and Dell Quay is a long way out, but I can't position it well enough myself - it looks like it might be at 50.820926, -0.814244 but I'm not totally sure..

Thames SC is at 51.397122, -0.311767

London Corinthian SC is at 51.490573, -0.238804

Tamesis is spot on, there is another club next door which is called Ariel Sailing Club and they definately win the spot prize for most visitor un-friendly website. Check it out - possibly the least friendly sailing club website in the world.

Merlimags

Any chance of making the map bigger on this site and adding in the "link to this page" feature, as that would help the tidying up of the location data?

Otherwise you find a club 'out of position' on your map and then have to go to full google maps to find the correct lat/long.

Still love it - now we just need an option to "export as a TOMTOM POI file" - perfecto for those open meeting bandits..

Crikey. Why the hell would you do that with your website? I know of some clubs that have a members-only area, or even a members only site linked off the main one, but to completely hide all information about yourself is discouraging in the extreme. Are they one of those clubs that you need to know the right people before you can even be considred for membership? My spider sense picks up the distinct signals of blue blazers...

Ariel is the BBC's sailing club and I believe that you have to work for the corporation to be a member, hence all the "secret squirrel" stuff.

Why not at least have a public site explaining that? Are the BBC ashamed of having a sailing club or something?
