The recession, sorry long very temporary credit crisis, is potentially the best thing to happen to clyde sailing for the last decade.
No more will people turn up from dinghy land with Bavaria budgets and an idea of comfort actually having anything to do with racing
Th SB3 and Flying Fifteens / pipers are all enough OD for us with a limited budget ( a snot if you MUST have a lid and a trauma room) . The 1990s saw some of the best action in OD on the clyde and it is a sad state for most clubs with the demonic down-tour to Bavarias and Bendytubs with IRC tweaks.
I wish Dane and the others (paddy still got an interest at HSC?) good luck with getting more owners/syndicates into the SB3.
I've heard this so called small whippet-like mini 1720 boat attracts good looking young ladies with its favourable weight limit... Which some say is preferable to sailing with some fat lads munching... more
