I have just been approached by our Commodore, asking me to vote on the latest Brexit petition, I was very annoyed, I go to club for a break.
I am thinking about asking committee to make it a suggestion that members leave real life at the gate.

I've always thought that leaving the classic taboo subjects at the door was more than wise. And as Brexit seems to be the most contentious subject for decades it just reconfirms the wisdom of making clubs a politics free zone.

It would help if people could leave club politics at the gate as well!

Certainly agree.

Money, religion, politics not subjects to be discussed in any seriousness.

There is a need for some spaces to share a common interest.

Always thought that even what job you did, what strata of society, let alone political views, were left at the gate at most clubs. Given that we have all been screwed over, whichever way we voted, should leave Brexit firmly out of the picture.

Agreed, the way Brexit has been handled, makes the PYAG look like an efficient organisation.

Maybe it's all a cunning plan by the government to reunite the country in the cause of hating politicians?

It's an unparalleled disaster and appears to be getting worse.

Even if politics should generally be kept out of the boat park, there is an argument for discussing this particular issue, though: it will affect all those sailors who travel in big boats and venture outsides the confines of this isle. Thus it's not something we should just blithely ignore.

It will affect more than just those.

Some of our Topper youths are heading to Medemblik in June for the Worlds on the basis that it's a cheap event, just hop on the ferry in Hull and a bit of a drive the other end. 70 Euros to camp onsite.

Could they see blockages at the ports? Will 70 Euros work out more in real terms than it is now if the pound tanks? Will they need visas?

Worse case for me and I would think many others, is if costs of living escalate dramatically due to a no-deal Brexit, expensive hobbies like sailing will be the first thing to go...

I see too many parallels between our sailing club and Brexit. All talk, no decisions and no action, many of the committee just want to "manage the decline" i.e. wrap it up, get out and get the money for their other interests whilst some of us try hard to make a go of it and remain to fight for it.

Loads of paralells with our club where remain won due to a biased vote and concerted disinformation by a local nimby group opposed to a development which would have given us a brand new club Worthing style fifteen percent more boat parking, a nearby campsite and a concrete purpose built slipway over the shingle.
As it is we remain in our wooden shack and they're cobbling on an extension whilst building a rack for SUPs or kayaks that has cost us two boat spaces but clubs are clubs you can take a horse to water but....
