i have been today met a few members of colwyn bay club where I sail, had a great time spending money😁 and looking round the museum. there are some real old barges there👍. the model boats were also very nice to see. saw a fantastic aircraft carrier. there wasn't much sailing on the water as it was windy.

Attended on Saturday and enjoyed looking round the club stands and chatting to friends. The usual traders were in attendance so I was able to select and buy the supplies I required. The bring and buy was doing a brisk trade and there was plenty on offer for those who wanted a ready to run to some nice bare hulls as well as part completed ready for restoration.
Entrance was through the usual main door and there was a catering facility available on site.
Plenty of boats on the water including displays by the Lifeboats Enthusiasts Socy.
Hope to be attending again next year.

Having been to this show in the past and enjoyed everything the show had to offer I am afraid this year was not what I was expecting at all and needless to say our 2hr trip down the motorway was soon a return trip. I believe the fact that the Museum was not open due to refurbishment didn't help and maybe a postponement of the event may have been the best option!
Hopefully any future shows will get back to form once the Museum has done its work.
