Tried posting yesterday but then had to get on a plane. Bases on 2019 returns 
4th RS200 6036—— 5th RS400  5967——- 10th  Merlín Rocket 3151 —— 11th Ent 2835 ——- 

Gives an indication of club level activity.

Snipe only has just over three thousand members worldwide, figures on their own class website, very small figure for UK.

Sail numbers may reflect boats built (in the case of the Ent and Laser) or boats registered in a particular country (the Europe for example). Numbers at Nationals and PY returns are probably a reasonable measure of how active the class is in the UK but skewed if a class has any clubs still fleet racing them (like the Solos at my home club).

Problem with the timbre of posts on this thread, is that OP is trying to persuade his sister to return to sailing, (we don't know why she stopped), but she is hardly likely to be persuaded to come back, when she reads this thread. Thread drift and trolling are all well and good for a laugh on more general threads, but a request for information should be treated has such.

If her sailing experience is accurate why would she even look on here . As she already knows more about sailing than most of us . All she would have to do is message Dougaldog and Jim C to get the relevant info and cut out all this white noise  LOL Wink

Based in Winchester, there would be a huge choice of clubs within a sensible drive.
First choice to make is perhaps pond or sea?
Then what do you want from a club?
With small kids it's likely to be about learning.

Choice of boat should be well down the list.
No one boat will do everything for a family.
What club boats can be used?
Sailing school boats hired?

Choice of boat is most likely going to need to change as kids grow, but I'd be thinking more about things like Pico or RS plastic equivalent thing. The smallest thing the adult in question plus one child can operate in will be easiest for the small child to learn?

Likewise choice of club may change over time.
Lymington springs to mind.
I know someone who sails there, lives not ever so far from Winchester.
Maybe it's easier for the kids to start younger inland though?
OTOH, a 40ft Benetteau would take the whole family....
