it's great - good on them for moving on with the times.... next step, dump the R 'royal' bit. 

in fact, dump the Y 'yachting' bit too. 

Nothing wrong with A - 'association' per say, but it's a bit superfluous given the represent the interests of groups and people who are not necessarily in membership.

They could go the full hog and rebrand themselves 'Watersports UK'  and make themselves truly relevant to a wider community... although I get that might have other connotations too, worth the risk imho.


the problem is that would  piss off the BCU  and the  bigot collective that is  UK Rowing  to say the least 

some see a problem, others see an opportunity  Embarrassed LOL


AFAIK the BCU haven;t done anything dreadful yet 

 the Rowing lot  prefer to listen to  the witless and irrelevant and Putin funded agitators  rather than the  evidence

Don't forget the BKA, UKWA (and countless other watercraft owner/racer organisations).

Really? Royalist majority is a thing, unfortunately. But being a Christian is definitely not a majority thing . Current figures are that less that 4% of the uk go to church regularly. 😀

Plus I see no importance or relevancy to this discussion that your white ………… or green or yellow or red or any other colour for that matter. 
Other than sailing is a very white sport , which is it’s loss.   Confused

Duncan, Christian and White thing added to refer to how in certain circles, White people should be ignored (naturally bigoted) and to refer to NicolaJaynes bigot post. What she is referring to regarding Rowing UK, cannot be discussed on here, a 5 feet 6 inch 9 stone rower comprehensively thrashed in a race by a 6 feet 2 inch 18 stone rower. (general figures but close enough). Rowing GB asked Putin for advice he replied, "Easy have separate races". 
Closest I can come to issue without causing ructions we had earlier, Google Rowing GB 'Latest news.




    Edited to add,


      You don't have to go to Church/Chapel to be a Christian, I am a non denominational Christian, I don't go due to total lack of leadership, Church should be campaigning against rampant profiteering etc.
