He isn't asking for money. Membership just involves providing your name, email address, sail number, rig type and district and takes less than 30 seconds to sign up. This will allow Bruce to reach out to the Torch/Laser sailors and keep them up to date on what is happening.
So far, of the players in this ILCA/LP/Kirby triangle, every statement Bruce has made has proven to be true and everything he said he would do, he eventually did. The same cannot be said for the other two players. Although I support and believe in several officers of the ILCA, I do not see their wisdom or integrity in the actions of the ILCA. I fear that the efforts of those I trust have somehow been suppressed by something odd going on within the ILCA.
If you support Bruce in his efforts to support the needs of the sailors, communicate with them and ultimately, keep his design sailing, please send an email of support to firstname.lastname@example.org. He cares what you think!
At ImproperCourse, we support Bruce Kirby and wish him success. We also encourage the ILCA to grow a pair and get off the fence. The ISAF has already concluded that LP is no longer licensed to build the boat. The ISAF is the ILCA's governing authority! There is no need to wait for the outcome in court.
