The HISC system works really well. In exchange for giving the club money up front, cardholders get discount on food & drink. It means there's no need to take cash into the building, so no risk of theft from changing rooms when most peeps are on the water.

essential to have good database managers for these pre-paid systems, they're great and think that all clubs could benefit from them, but unless they're 100% reliable, completely user friendly for volunteers to operate then they shouldn't be implemented.

We could really do with a card reader, both the galley and bar are cash only however the bar 'allows' a tab to be started, on the understanding it is settled before leaving for the day.
In reality, the board behind the bar is covered in increasingly older notes along the lines of 'Dave owes 5' which never seems to get paid back

I think the UK is behind the times in embracing cashless society, although we are catching up slowly.  Having spent a lot of time in Scandinavia and more recently China - contactless/ card and even mobile phone payments are often more readily accepted than cash in many places.  It shouldn't be that difficult to have a contactless card reader in most sailing clubs for bar and galley payments.
