We have the same rules in place at our sailing club. The F18's, N20's and A cats abide by this. The F16's are 50/50 (they have more cruisers). Unfortunately, we have a board comprised of ~60% cruisers/socialites and ~40% sailors/racers (used to be probably 80% dinghy sailors/racers), with a big boat cruising sailor as commodore. This is not a knock on them, they are volunteering and doing us a great service, but it also means parking rules are a bit lax. The other catch is we have a few empty spaces, and the club sees that as lost revenue, so we aren't keen to kick existing boats to the curb for not racing.
I certainly think an early spring clinic would be good. Wish I could get some of the NE teams down but it is quite a haul for them and Annapolis has mixed conditions (though usually breeze in early spring and warmer temps than RI!)
