So there has been one serious injury to a kitesurfer who collided with some rocks at Lancing and accidents have occurred at other places on the south coast of England is your answer?

That's essentially correct but there have been quite a number of accidents at Lancing (including a fatality) that we know about because the BKSA (and it would appear Toby) will go to extreme lengths to keep these issues out of the public domain censoring safety discussion so we never get to fully understand the circumstances or lessons that can be learned to prevent a repetition which breaks every rule of safety management.

This is because the BKSA makes the vast majority of its income from selling poor quality insurance to the masses who don't look too closely at the detail of their policy and (after they have paid themselves exorbitant salaries) they squander that in doomed legal actions that result in their having to pay huge costs.

Just look at the amount of income they received last year (huge) and ask yourself how many events they organised (very few that actually went ahead anyway) and you will start to get the picture.

Steve. Sorry legal eagle.

For someone who believes he knows the courts you seem happy to commit slander?

Hurting a 3rd party would be an issue, not people hurting themself.

That sounds confusing.

So it is essentially correct that there has been one serious (probably could be termed near fatal) accident at Lancing where a kiter injured himself. The question then is, did that happen before the meeting which you were criticising the decision making of.

I'm not clear on who the 'we' are that knows about a fatality that has been kept out of the public domain by the BKSA. So are you saying that the BKSA can keep the details of the death of someone out of the public domain?

Must say that I find the original posters purpose difficult to fathom. Is he trying to warn people away from Lancing? Is he trying to improve it? Maybe these two questions are related? Is it just the frustrated venting of someone with no other outlets? The conversation seemed to morph very quickly beyond normal sledging....so should I just go kiting and forget I ever tried to understand wtf is going on in this thread....?
