Due to a flood of spammer registrations the registration module of this forum is now disabeled.

It's for the time being I hope, a closed private forum makes no sense I know.
Mind, this tool was originally intended to get the 2017 Nationals on rails. Now almost a year later it has become a magnet for all kinds of pirates.

Probably time to think about an alternative.

Go back to google groups, traffic on website doesn't justify all the work involved in running own forum.

Well dispite it's limitations Google Groups never failed us. It just keeps on going without any trouble, very right.
At least it's a stable platform for the few of us not very fond of FB.
No need to mention FB has more or less taken over the role?
Hardly no -if any- in depth info there but it's alive.

For now this page will remain active for and with the existing members. For those who like there is the Gougle Groups Minisail Forum.

Good plan, lock this forum to existing members for the moment, use it for a technical repository, any new members can be reffered to here with a link on google group.

And far as I understand, this forum can still be consulted for information and by having a 'sticky' (highlighted thread) with instructions as how genuine people can contact us we are covering all bases.
I recently posted a link to this forum on our FB page as there are a couple of American sailors looking for technical information and not getting much help.

It's far from ideal but yes this forum is now read only, except for the 12 genuine members.
Any question / request / proposal can be adressed to minisailwebmaster{at}gmail.com

The rise of facebook groups has a huge impact on forums. This one looked already in sleep-mode months before it got a magnet for spammers.
It surprises (and amuses) me that with the volume of traffic they get, the people looking for technical information are not getting much help.
