Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 hours ago

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 day ago
Welcome to the club Allen, 👍 I had to swim a lot further out! 🤔 Fortunately my destroyer didn't sink - just stopped 😲 'Onetenor' is also a member of our club (Founder!?) but he rescued a child, not just a model boat! 👍👍👍 See blog 'A splash in the water'. Tja, nicht wie geplant gelaufen! 😡 (Hmm! Didn't go as planned!) Still love the boat stand! Cheers Doug 😎

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by AllenA Captain   Posted: 1 day ago
Managed, at last, to get to the water on Monday at the Knap in Barry, South Wales with the Vale of Glamorgan Model Boat Club. Unbekannte Flitze was very fast off the mark, agile with incredible turns and generally good control. After about 5 or 6 minutes she became sluggish and I started to bring her in. About a yard out she just pointed her nose in the air and bubbled ignominiouly as she went to the bottom. Only one answer. off with everything but my pants and in we go. Rumour from Ken Thompson was that i was practising for the local Iron Man event. One poor lady actually believed it. The problem was a loose water cooling fault for p... poor preparation. Note to self... buy chest waders.

JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE by Fulvia Apprentice   Posted: 1 day ago
Great boat😁. There are now nearly 20 in our club. Eastbourne & District Model Yacht Club. Takes less than 30 seconds to dis-mast but mast does not collapse. There are plenty different sail bags available for easy damage free transportation however.👍 If you are looking for an easy to transport yacht then the Dragon Force is ideal as it fits on the back seat of the smallest of cars fully rigged. It sails almost as well as the Dragon Flite. The club hosting the Dragon Force National Championship this weekend.

Largs Boat Club by rolfman2000 Captain   Posted: 2 days ago
What a shame. It looks such a lovely location for a model boat club. There must be some cash somewhere in the system which could just repair the pond and waterproof it. If there is a "current" club, maybe they could approach a local business to help with finances as a sponsorship. Heres hoping for a positive future. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

Phantom IOM by AlanB Seaman   Posted: 3 days ago
Thanks Ken, from your advice I found a club in Australia who race Phantoms. One of the youtube posts showed a boat with the hatch enlarged which is what I am currently thinking of copying. Thanks again.

Looks like great fun. Nice cheap build boats, all to s single plan. I might suggest it to our club, if I ever get back up there 😊

A SPLASH IN THE WATER by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 3 days ago
I'm not a member of any model boat club yet, but I am about to join two that I have visited recently, where the member's have been very welcoming. They even said that if was sailing my boat and got into difficulty, they would wade out and rescue if the boat got stuck in any obstruction under the water. That got me thinking. If I was to sail my boat at any pond or small lake etc and I did get into difficulty and did not have a 'Rescue Boat' I would need to have some sort of protective clothes. These waders and wellingtons both come to less than twenty pounds. Is that a good buy.

JOINING BATTERY & RECEIVER CABLE by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 5 days ago
Ah Insulting Tape. LOL. That's for Donald Trump. I think I may have ordered the wrong switch fitting. I thought they were all the same. But the one I received does not fit the receiver, its a tad too fat. Perhaps I can return it for the correct fitting. Problem is I not at all versed in the various pugs types and associated names for them. You have been courageous in stopping me kill this little bit of apparatus. Not wishing to waste my time on this murder, I applied two new transfers to the little Proboat Westward 18 in preparation for its initial sail. I have three ponds I can go to, Knightswood Boat Club, Elderpark Boat Club and Richmond Park Boat Club. All within fifteen minutes drive of me. The suspense is killing me. Thanks again.

Guestbook Post by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 5 days ago
It has and in many ways. I'm sailing for my little grandson who is only two. I have never sailed a model boat before, be it motor or yacht. But I'm determined to learn to pass on the him when is older. The articles you present are very informative and your club listings are excellent. I'm confident Ill continue to associate myself with your website and continue to learn.

Largs Boat Club by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 6 days ago
Pity such a beautiful West Coast location should have a popular boat club pond in disrepair. Sign of the time perhaps with many councils having reduced expenditure. But a disappointment travelling with my small grandson to sail his little Proboat Westward 18 for the first time. It's the first thing he noticed, no water. Staff in the RNLI shop along the promenade said the pond had not been in use since last year. Here's hoping the council can organise repairs before next year's season. I couldn't resist buying a little model fishing boat from them the RNLI shop which now has pride of place in our kitchen shelf.
