The Royal Southern YC provides affordable variety to encourage more racing in 2013
The results from the Royal Southern Yacht Club's Dayboat Seminar held last September, combined with other surveys and research undertaken by the RORC Rating Office and the SB20 Class, confirm that boat owners and their crews are suffering not just from a shortage of money but also a lack of time to go racing.
The Royal Southern is introducing a series of measures designed to get more boats on the water and provide owners with more sailing opportunities, which adds up to more value.
As the Club's Rear Commodore Sailing, Karen Henderson-Williams affirms, "Racing has to offer better value and recognise that sailors have families too. Sailors are also starting to tire of the ubiquitous windward/leeward courses and are looking for more variety."
