Ponds in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) area (3 months ago)
South Bavaria Scale Model Boat Builders
Ahoy! Talking about ponds in our particular region, we are very fortunate to have several areas fed with pristine Alpine mountain water sources and one in particular by an underground thermal source, so no freezing, etc, etc. And best of all, no friggin' bird poop nor underwater vegetation. Can't beat that. There is a nice park with its nice pond called "Loisachbad" just a few hundred meters from home which is my "official" homeport. However, during winter the place to go is the Badersee, that non-freezing pond I just mentioned. Other places to go about 20 minutes from here driving north towards Munich are the Kochelsee (near Murnau), Starnbergsee, and the Olympia Park, about 1 hour north from here in Munich. That one is nice but unfortunately the area is a minefield of bird poop. And the Plansee, a mega beautiful place about 30 minutes from here in the Austrian side. Cheers, b.

Model Boat Club's Ponds/Lakes (3 months ago)
Basingstoke Model Boat Club
Many of us know our own local ponds and lakes where Model Boat Clubs sail but not nationally so I thought it might be good if we could post photos of our own Boat Clubs' home waters. It would be interesting to see where other clubs sail so here goes with a couple of photos of our Basingstoke Model Boat Club's home water at Eastrop Park, Basingstoke. Good flat access all around the model boat pond and good facilities for those with disabilities.

Response by Gascoigne on the 3 months ago
Vast expanse of concrete at Munich pond when it is drained!
Eaton pond was built between the wars primarily for sailing large vane control yachts, hence the long shape,and as such is said to be one of the best examples in the U.K. We have a perennial weed problem-common to any large expanse of fresh water-which is currently controlled with application of chemicals. I am sure most clubs have this problem and I would be interested in their experience with weed control.
Response by marky on the 3 months ago
Hi Doug , if they did that here the council would decide it was cheaper to leave it drained and give it over to skate boarders and bmx bikes .Cheers Marky👍
Response by RNinMunich on the 3 months ago
Hi Mark, There'd probably be a public outcry if the council decided to do that here 😉And the councillors would get voted out pretty quick😊
Fortunately the boarders, bikers and rollerbladers have their own spaces elsewhere 😊 Although you do see bladers, joggers and cyclists all over the many paths and tracks around the park. Cheers Doug 😎

Details of new model club. (3 months ago)
FGSC MODEL BOAT SECTION
FGSC is the Fishers Green Sailing Club, which is a full sized sailing and yacht club based beside several large freshwater lakes near Waltham Abbey. There is a special Model section which has sole use of two lakes at the club.

The club is accessed via a road through part of the Lea Valley conservation area and parkland and is not open to the general public so our lakes are very secure and peaceful.

More information is available via our Facebook page including directions on how to get there. We are a fairly new Model Boat club and are welcoming newcomers who wish to join.

Please go to :-
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1736743009873311/
For more information or you can email our club representative at
ivorwarne@aol.com

Now you all know where we sail and drive our boats I think you need to know we gather together about 10:30 every Sunday. Come and have fun with us if you are brave enough to enjoy our friendly banter.😊
Response by ModelHover on the 5 months ago
Why brave enough, Bryan? The thing I will say is that we are a great bunch of enthusiast who primarily sail for fun. We are there Sunday morning from about 10.30 but do check the website as we sometime go to a local eatery for breakfast and banter. http://www.spanglefish.com/chichestermodelboatgroup

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Chichester+PO19+8DT/
Is this the correct location?

That's it. The postcode is for the 'Canal Centre and Cafe' which is good. Thanks

Sailing days (8 months ago)
Mablethorpe Model Boat Group
Hi. Can you tell me when you are next sailing please? I went to the lake this morning but there were no models.
Response by HoweGY177 on the 8 months ago
Hi, We sail on a Wednesday and Sunday. During the lighter days it is 5.30pm, when the evenings close in it is 2pm. You must have £5million public liability insurance and a letter of permission from the local council. Hope this helps.
