Of course not. But I am struck by the difference between the V&A set-up:

...and that which you find in Hamilton Harbour:

Even though it's technically a more exclusive enclave, the V&A development appears to invite access. And it is comparatively compact. The marina on Hamilton Harbour, meanwhile, sprawls out across almost a kilometer of waterfront property.

Leander and RHYC are obviously historic institutions, and active enjoyment of the Harbour should be encouraged but I can't help but look at all of those berths and all of those parking lots/open-air dry docks and wonder if we can't come up with a slightly more inclusive, slightly more efficient vision of the waterfront.
