Not surprising sailing off 1153, what's that event called? Battle of the Bandits?

"Enterprise largest double handed class in the world" -oh REALLY - since when??? It's nowhere near it, even iGRF can do better than that!

7 different classes in the top ten with good local sailors in Ents out of the top ten, you need another hymn book iGRF

Sail boat data has Mirror at 7.000 should be 70,000……

420 56,000 …..

Snipe is at 31,000……

While Ent very respectable 27,000

All needs to be considered with a large pinch of salt and some classes issue blocks of numbers that don’t get built 

Formatting all to cock sorry

Nice one Tink, very difficult to believe 'Snipe' figures, without meaning to be controversial 'Mirror' figures??? I am a big fan of the Mirror, no way RYA would take the attitude it has if membership was that high.
The figures must be amount built.

You can't write it, never mind make it up, in one thread the Enterpise has risen from the dead to be a world leading class and local event champion boat and a Bandit to boot.. Where do I sign? Be just the thing for the Grandchildren of which I now have two and can't wait for the day.

You've got to love this place.

Okay - just this once and because it is Xmas...the Mirror stats are good and can be relied on, as are the Snipe numbers. Just because there are not big here in the UK doesn't mean that they are not huge globally - so making comments about 'biggest in the world' is wrong by so many degrees. There are other classes with numbers in excess of the Ent.

Back to the Snipe...it is only two Olympic rotations ago that the Snipe very nearly replaced the 49er - I jest not, but in terms of global footprint, they have the numbers. Ask why the 470s are still at the Games and you have the same answer. We're actually quite small beer in the numbers game....
