Hello and welcome to the forum for the RYA National Hornet Class.

The purpose of these forums is to provide a discussion area for you to discuss hot topics with fellow class members and others interested in the Hornet. Also let your committee know what you want from the association.

To start things off, the committee have created a few forums. If you think of more we should have then let us know via the "general" forum.

Remember that our membership covers a range of ages and sensitivities, so to avoid offending and keep the forums clean, usable and helpful please observe the following guidelines:-

  • No pornographic, sexually offensive, or sexually explicit material - This includes suggestive images, graphics, and comments.
  • No Politics or Religion - Remember not everyone may share your views on religion or goverment politics.
  • No Jokes - It's OK to poke a bit of fun at fellow members splashing in at the gybe mark, but save your stand up routines for the bar after sailing.
  • Do not use objectionable language.
  • Post in the right forum - This makes life easier for all. If a post is blatantly in the wrong forum, it will be moved to a more appropriate one. Ideas for new forums can be posted in the general forum.
  • Use descriptive Topic Subject - This will help others find what they want to read.
  • Personal Attacks - Criticise ideas, not people. Flaming will not be tolerated. This includes any material which is vulgar, defamatory, inaccurate, harassing, hateful, threatening, invading of others privacy, sexually oriented, or violates any laws.
  • Respect the privacy of others - Do not post other's phone numbers, addresses, pictures, etc., without their permission.
  • No Advertising - The For Sale section of the website can be used to sell boat related items. The whole internet can view that section so you are more likely to make a sale.
  • Message content - You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages.
  • No Cap Locks - Please do not post messages with the subject or post all in capital letters. This is considered "shouting" and not only is it annoying but in fact takes the human brain 50% longer to read than normal writing.

The committee reserves the right to remove any messages that it feels breaks the above guidelines and to revoke access to the individual concerned.

Finally if you get stuck at any time there is on-line help available by clicking the help icon at the top of the screen.

RYA National Hornet Association Committee.
