Hi all, can anyone tell me if Kingfishers still sail at Sutton Bridge or Long Sutton. Looking for a local club. Failing that, how about anyone in the Fens (near Wisbech) getting together on the Well Creek and just sailing...FREE!
Good grief! Is there NOBODY in the Fens with a wish to meet up and sail for free on one of the hundreds of bodies of water we have round here? What a sad state of affairs. Kings Lynn is TOO far away. Kingfishers was a possible, but no response. And that was also a bit of a trek.
Hi Martin Kingfishers MBC are not listed in our club sites so it's possible we have no members from this club. However they did ask Mayhem to list their club in 2008 with the following details "We are The Kingfishers Model Boat Club. We meet on the third Monday of the month except December in Sutton Bridge We sail in Long Sutton on Wednesdays and Sundays We are just off the A17 just in Lincolnshire with members from Linc's, Norfolk and Camb's, for more info contact 01406 350968 or 01945 584241. It was 9 years ago so this may not be current but a polite phone call may elicit the current position. There is another post from 2012 suggesting "Spalding club meet on Sundays behind the NFU offices in Springfields If not The Kingfishers Model Boat Club meet in Sutton Bridge and have the use of a lake in Long Sutton and one in Sutton Bridge.
Good luck and I am sure you will find somewhere to sail. Dave
Martin, Did you ever make any progress with your search? I have just moved into the Wisbech area and am also looking for somewhere to sail. I have looked at Nar Valley MBC and at the moment they seem to be the only option, but would really like something more local. Gerry
Hi I was sec of the kingfishers mbc Kings lynn mbc sail at leziate country club. Martin sails at Outwell on the canal bend round the church, my phone number is the 01406 on the internet if you need more info the web site we used closed down as the chaps running it retired Yours Scout
Gerry, following our meeting last Monday, I realise I don't have your phone number. Could you get in touch with me about running on the Well Creek. Did you mention it to your chums at Kingfishers on the Wednesday.
