    Hi Rick, Just realised, you bought a TID tug recently which I commented on. I thin that was a very good choice for a boat to restore. Will look forward to seeing her on the lake when you have her going. What is this second one you are acquiring?
    Cheers, Nerys

    Re- the Welsh News. They are shortly allowing Holiday Parks etc to reopen but still haven't mentioned parks like the Knap and other outdoor spaces whilst allowing non contact sports. most of which would be played in parks. Relaxing the travel restrictions will help me as far as travelling to Barry is concerned and I suppose a lot of our members who live in and around the Vale, such as Llantwit Major.
    Still a bit of confusion as far as I can see, but no doubt you, Ken, will acquire confirmation in due course.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Rick,
    Welcome to the club, I'm Nerys who Ken mentioned to you, I build the models, but Alice does the electrical bits for me. What sort of boats do you build, I prefer sail to power, with a particular penchant for Thames Barges. Looking forward to meeting you when we are allowed to resume sailing. Hopefully, not too long.

    All the best, Nerys

    That's perfectly true Ken, Cold Knap Lake was built for the people of Barry during the depression of the 1920's in order to provide employment.
    I certainly didn't need insurance or risk assessments when I was sailing my pond yacht on there in the 1930's.

    Cheers, Nerys

    As far as I know, the Knap lake belongs to the people of Barry, not the council, although they look after it?
    Any one can take a model boat and sail it on the lake, at any time, they don’t need insurance or a risk assessment for that, to park on the hard standing they need insurance, against public liability.
    Cheers
    Ken

    Hi Nerys, not just now , their interest of health and safety.
    We had to provide a policy to be able to get permission to sail as a club, and use the car park hard standing, and we had to show we have insurance.
    Cheers
    Ken.

    Ken, I wonder why the council should suddenly worry about our Health and Safety, risk assessment etc. Hopefully they haven't just realised we are there and want to make moves towards greater regulation. It's all very frustrating, not being able to sail, particularly when you see the pictures on the AMBO page of barges sailing on the IOW last weekend.

    Cheers, Nerys
