I have updated the map that shows sailing clubs - available from CLUBS on the menu (top left).

Any problems, please let me know! Hopefully it all works nicely...

I think the previous option was a bit clearer.

Brilliant!

I hadn't realised just how hard it is to get to a club from where we live - at a stretch I can just see 4 clubs on the screen on the first resolution that clubs are visible. that is in an area of about 100 miles by 150.

And using the link I see someone has entered some excellent photos which I never knew about... off to do more investigating

I have looked at the clubs in my area. I notice Shoreham and Brighton SC are no where near the sea an in fact they are not near any water!!

I guess they have given you incorrect info.

I noticed that with the Royal Burnham YC, but when I searched for it using the name, it pinpointed it to the right location.

We position the clubs using the postcode first...often that is highly accurate, but some postcodes span larger areas, and thats where Mark (our Editor) went and manually tweaked loads of the markers.

Apologies if we have got it wildly wrong. And of course we didnt know the address of some clubs, so they don't appear on the map at all (yet). Its amazing how many of the club's own websites dont have a postal address or map of any sort!

In terms of finding clubs, the old system was probebly easier for a ludite, but this map is more fun.
