Wouter, there was some debate a couple of weeks ago about the precise parameters for membership qualification. Did you get closure on that?
That discussion is still going. Although some things are certain. I won't be charging membership fees, too much hassle and I'm not going to spend the time on it that is required. No-one else volunteered for it so this decision now stands.
The other points are still up in the air, but these don't have to influence the entlisting part. The rules will be such that we'll get maximum approval of sailors AND volunteers. Anybody who still doesn't agree to the mild limits that will be set can always be purged from the membership listing in 2006. As a welcome 2005 membership is open to anybody owning a Taipan 4.9 + spi, Stealth, Blade, Taipan F16, Mosquito + spi or One-off F16.
More on this in the coming weeks. We will take some time to think it through thorougly
