Why are club fleet sizes continuing to fall. Is this because the older boats can't be bothered because they are so far behind the more modern boats. What are clubs doing to encourage the older smaller cruising boats to get out and get involved. 30ft and under just don't seem to be out there any more. I am as guilty as anyone, it's no fun when everyone does a horizon job on the few small boats in the fleet.
No effort is being made to try and increase the small boat fleets. There are heaps of 70s and 80s boats just sitting there never being involved in any club activities. They don't even belong to a club because the clubs offer them nothing. Maybe all these clubs that have falling memberships should be a little more proactive in their quest for new membership.
