    Hi Nyrs,

    in principle I certainly agree, - but many club members enjoy sailing in cpmpany. Much of course also depends on distance to; and most importantly the sheer size of the sailing lake.

    Apart from my own and Flaxbybuck's 18-mile drive (often in heavy traffic, with a huge and very exposed sailing water, all our our Club members all too often rely on the fast availability of our safety boat!

    With best wishes Dr John F. Leeds & Bradford MBC๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    I often visit the lake on non club sailing days, as this gives one the chance to take advantage of good sailing days. As we all know fine,sunny days are not the prerogative of weekends, so if you are able to get to the lake, I strongly recommend it. You have the lake to yourself and the only hazard is in talking to the occasional member of the public who is interested enough to stop and talk.

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Many thanks for the useful info Scott. I shall look into getting a similar camera for my boats.

    First of all I shall do a few experiments with the little Dash Can which has set used on my desk for the past 2 years!

    Hi John

    They are stills from a budget GoPro style action camera. It's a Goodman's 1080 30fps camera and all the GoPro hero 4 attachments are compatible. Ive had a few GoPro cameras before and really for my needs they where ott. This however captures what I want and very well. The still quality suffers greatly of what the videos are like and for the bargain price of ยฃ18!
    Built in LCD screen with a good useful range of features

    Regards

    Hi Scott,

    Love the on board picures. Are these from an "rc-fired" still camera such as the Go-Pro, or stills from an on-board video??

    Another fine day during my lunch break. Found a lovely sun trap part of the pond and had an hour to myself show boating to the families walking round ๐Ÿ™‚
