Part reason why club racing fell apart on my local pond was that insurance costs for the WS club went sky high. Subsequently affiliation with the local sailing club was a prospect but required the WS element like all 'classes' to take a turn on the organising side of regatta days and most WS people did not want to do that. Seems that people are increasingly cash rich and time poor which is why plug and play gear is so popular (and I would think just the thing for club training and racing anyway). For myself I have migrated to 'dedicated' slalom gear as a 'growth path' until such time as the wheel goes around again, as I am sure it must.
