As these cannot be charities which would make fundraising difficult, I formed Barry Youth Watersports. BYC seem to think I have stolen 'their idea' and I have been told various things eg "You want to make money out of young people" "Tou cost us a lot of money" etc.
Everyone wants to protect their little bit and no one is prepared to push forward and get things happening. We are now coming up to my third seadon in Barry and there is little prospect of any more sailing on Barry Docks than when I moved here. So I have booked holidays for much of the summer - I may put in more effort if sense ever breaks out but I ain't holding my breath.
Favourite saying "Barry - graveyard of enterprise"
