Here is something from our model boats section always well attended taken from Barries newsletter
A good day if a little chilly, a definite feel of Autumn in the air.
Two of the comps got under way and i have a sneaky feeling
the members enjoyed the experience. First off was the round
the lake challenge, this started at marker number two then on
around the lake in your choice of rotation back to marker two .
then around the marker for a circuit in the opposite direction
and back to the the number two marker for the final circuit in
the original direction then back to marker two.
Bob was home first to claim the bottle of wine.

on the lake on the lake challenged on the day by Bobs home
built. Not sure if bob designed the yacht or if he built it from
a plan. No Marbleheads or IOM were running in the events
to make a challenge, although Bill did get get in the fray with
his Laser but didn’t match the Dragons for speed.
