    • Hi Could anyone suggest a source of stick on numbers so I can neatly put GBR**** on my hull, please? At a sensible price I might add!
    • Hi Roger, Writing in a personal capacity. A lot is made of the fact that the MYA is an association of clubs, yet the majority of items that the MYA council spend time on relate to the individual. My experience has been that when a club comes to the MYA looking for help or guidance, the response is less than ideal; whether it be health and safety, discipline, funding or general club advice, the MYA council has been inconsistent and lacking in clarity. Why is this? It's not because of apathy, or lack of effort, but the council is trying to do too many things for too many people, with too few, mainly racing or individual related which leads the council members into areas of opinion and possible conflict. The primary object of the MYA should be to promote Radio and Free Sailing To do this we need to provide the guidance and resources to our clubs to help the MYA at a local level. - Without the clubs, none of us can go sailing..... To move forward the MYA needs to stop looking at what was good before and acknowledge that it cannot control all of the classes, or get involved with detailed technical class rule debate, or promote the interests of any particular group, it needs to let the individual owners get stuck in to their areas of interest and just keep hammering out the same message, come and have a go, its great. This is why in my opinion the sport needs to release as much of the class based discussion and control to those who are interested in their classes, thus focussing the council in to providing items for the clubs. If we release the classes, they get to flourish and the MYA can be sustainable with a slimmed down council. If they dont flourish it should not be down to the MYA to promote them over other classes that the members wish to sail. In the same respect the MYA should not hold a class back because it is focussed on another area for a period of time.   I have a different view to you on two of the regulation areas (these are my view and not necessarily the only or correct view ) 1. Disciplinary: It is all well and good stating that the RYA Charter covers everything, but our member clubs want support, not to be told to go and read a charter. A clearly defined process allows them to know the procedure, and also shows them the ultimate route and outcome should they, or others, not behave in a suitable way to other MYA members. This is about personal conduct and being part of the MYA "family" as much as racing rules and gives a route to resolving disputes which are not sailing related; which in my opinion are the most toxic ones for the clubs. 2. Fee Setting: Many of our club members want to help us in getting fees in by the end of December, but struggle when they cant set their fees until they know the MYA fees, and only get to know these at the AGM.  The solution to this is difficult, but changing the date of the AGM is not really practical, so the best solution (IMO) is to set the fees earlier and putting this out with the notice of the AGM gives clubs chance to discuss this, include this in their own fee discussions, or propose an alternative via a motion. This probaly makes little difference but at least the council have to consider the budget and the clubs know the proposed fee before the AGM motion date. Personally I would have included a clause that allows the council to set the fee annually with an increase of up to RPI without needing to bring it to the AGM, but maybe this would have had some detractors. Just my thoughts. Stay Safe Darin
