Rot starts at the top. Shit flows downhill.
Only way to stop that shit flow is with a new culture at the top. Simultaneously drain what shit is left off and pump a potent mix of "member rejection", "cooperation" or "suicide" invitations and a "new manifesto" pumped from the bottom back up.

Pick a Club suffering this same cultural disease and use it as a beta run to demonstrate this manifesto works before it is foisted upon national and international assemblies for expansion and tuning. 

Simple matter of selecting a Club in your area that is no longer "fit for purpose" as a benchmark and as that "crash and crash through" dummy.

Selecting one in SEQ shouldn't be too hard it seems.

You need a constitution change there js

Especially  the part about the ballot paper proxies being locked the managers office for thee days before the count the the election declared without the proxy count ever been made public or the ballot count

And let’s not forget the club auditors verify the count but never announce the numbers 

so the auditors are not independent

lastly nobody ever declares what the auditors are given to count

last thing want is a fair election

you may not win

and the greater populace just keep laughing at it

Always pays to know the numbers before they’re announced

This is gloves off not playing by old fashioned outdated rules sitting in association style corporate structures. Take a leaf out of modern politics.

Spend say 6 months using online tools informing, building a case and when sufficient support in hand pounce.

The more grubby club pushback like cancelling memberships of promoters etc the better. Doesn't take long to paint a solid picture of a bunch of cunts with a self serving "born to rule" by succession mentality.

The problem that we have with AS is you need to get ride of most of the AS management and employees and start all over again if you want to rebuild AS. 

The rot is so bad in AS that you need the broom to go through all of AS in order for our sport to grow. We need real sailors running our sport.

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.

Who ever thought such a thing could happen? That people would pervert votes and democratic elections?

Suggestion - start a new club with revised articles of association, put term limits on the leadership positions - something like elected for a single 3 year term, can't run for *any* leadership position for 5 years subsequent.

You won't beat them and you'll shed a lot of tears trying. Better to ignore them and leave them wither.

Of course you'll have to design your own spiffy new logo and burgee and not have the 'Royal' as part of your club name, but if those things are important to you - shrug. Just tug your forelock & mutter under your breath into your beer.

Yep viva la revolución starts with crashing this self styled micro nation. Just need a cool battle flag.

Could resurrect the old alt.sailing.asa burgee suggestion. IIRC it featured a tinfoil cap with flames shooting out.....

Don’t laugh about tin foil hats

the LFFC actually put out an amendment to the sailing instructions for the Australian sailing qld yachting championship which advised competitors that run foul was available at the local IGA store

Clearly showing respect for the members 

now where is that social media policy
