    The Thames Barges at Chantry model boat club were only there a couple of times a year when the Association of Model Barge Owners arranged to be there for the day in order to hold a series of races. They did the same at several other clubs in the East of England. Unfortunately, the Secretary retired, covid struck and nothing has been held there since 2019. I understand that they hope to arrange another visit in the not too far distant future.

    That sounds like a good trip, Rick.
    Seems as if model boats in public places are more prolific in the part of the world you visited, which, I know to have a great seafaring tradition. Unfortunately we seem to just come across models by chance, the odd small local maritime museum etc. That's ignoring the National Maritime of course. Back in the forties, I remember a magnificent collection of builders models of merchant ships in the National Museum of Wales, but on enquiry, I am told that they are crated up, in store. About half a dozen are in the National Waterfront Museum, but I had difficulty finding them. I remember ship models galore being displayed in the windows of shipowners in the City of London, but the last time I saw any in a shipowners office, it was in Nyon in Switzerland. I feel that in many ways we are a seafaring nation that has turned it's back on the sea.

    Nerys,

    No Nerys they are from my trip to PEI, NS, Newfoundland and Labrador and the places we visited. A show spot for model boats in most cities we stopped in.
