How to increase turnouts

Does anyone have any ideas for increasing turnouts?

One idea is to run the series from summer to summer.

In the last couple of years, the junior classes here have switched to a traveller series that runs from late summer one year to early summer the next (effectively between UK national champs). Sailors tend to transition to a youth class or from radial to standard after that cycle, so if we switched the Laser GP series to that schedule we might see improved numbers and perhaps a higher proportion who complete enough events in the series to qualify. The 29’er class do this already.

I would like to know what you think of this idea, would it increase numbers?
