VALUE FOR MONEY AT WEST KIRBY SAILING CLUB

72 boats from 7 countries, 3 days of racing on good long challenging courses, marvelous race management, wonderful hospitality, very different wind conditions, not too much rain, good food, good company, and a 3rd place for me!!! What more can I say?
As competitors we paid £22.50 entry fee and a further £18.50 "meal deal" thats £41.
For our £41 we got:-
At least 16 races each (more if you were promoted)
Buffet lunch on Sat (served by the nice ladies of the WKSC)
BBQ lunch on Sunday.
2 course meal on Sunday night and get together at the sailing club.
BBQ lunch on Monday.
Non stop tea & coffee all weekend.

If you missed it, and you could have been there, you missed a great event.

But all of this begs the following question.

If we can run 72 boats (only 4 less than the number in a Worlds or European champs) in 5 or 4 fleets and feed everyone lunch each day and unlimited tea & coffee and dinner one evening, WHY are we being asked to pay 8 times as much to enter the Europeans??
