Gum Ball will be run out side of RYA control and will have nothing to do with that organisation
it will be open to all not just race boats
the RYA have done there bit now its time for the fun to be put back with out the RYA rules or red tape
NEW TIMES NEED NEW WAYS

It's not going to happen because someone put a joke link up on Boatmad?

If that's enough for the whole thing to be cancelled then the whole thing must have been very fragile in the first place!

A good call. Concentrate on the ones supporting this idea. I certainly think it sounds like a great idea and also great opportunity for people to put faces to names.

I think your second comment makes sense. Perhaps better to bring this to the fore when you actually have something tangible to offer so there is no need for so much speculation.

Good luck, looking forward to seeing the website.

So it's a month on from the initial web site up soon and now it's six weeks more.... How long does it take to put just one page up? Need a hand Gary? I have a very good website designer to hand. I'm sure we could sort out a very good rate for you. Get in touch..
