As you know, I was a founder member of WMBC and served on the committee as treasurer.
My tenure only lasted a short time.
At my first AGM in post I started to collect subscriptions for the following year. I was rudely interrupted by the Chairman, also a founder member and who had elected himself, walking past with his partner, who had just been unlawfully elected membership secretary.
His passing remark was "Don't bother with that, waste of time!"
He then set up at another table with his 'membership secretary' and started collecting subscriptions.
I could tell many more stories about his 'rule', so current events do not surprise me in the slightest.
I resigned and joined Gloucester Model Boat Club.
I have been there some years now and have been more than happy with all involved. There are three sailing venues, including Gloucester Docks.
Google maps tell me that the venue at Over is 25miles from you or a 45 minute drive. There is easy access including wheelchairs.
