Next year, the Whitehall ******** are pushing yet more legislation thru to allow more lawmakers, this time it's harbourmasters who are to be given sweeping powers to do whatever the hell they like. The RYA are fighting their corner but it needs as many votes to support as possible.

So any harbour master will be able to simply ban or restrict anything he wishes... Including us. Obviously this is relevant to cruising rather than racing, and as a club we have a lot of potential votes to add.

PLEASE PLEASE click thru the link below - its a simple one click vote, no need to register or give an email address.

I signed it a couple of weeks ago & everyone who takes part in any kind of water activity needs to sign it.

It rediculous that someone can be given this much power and not be answerable to anyone.

This bill is beyond the point for us to have any influence. It is currently going through the house of lords.
The shipping minister has given assurance that appropriate safeguards are in place and in fact it could help in dispensing with out of date and inappropriate byelaws.
