Went along on Saturday morning. It seemed busy, which was good to see. Bought a few materials and some tools, there a good range of trade. I paid on the door, all seemed to work well, good level of staffing. Had a look at the bring n buy but wasn’t tempted. The show also included RC trucks, which would attract a wider range of visitors. Enough space around stands to move around.
As a “sailing” enthusiast there was not so much of interest. An impressive pilot cutter on one club stand, but couldn’t see how well it would sail, as the sheets seemed fixed and didn’t manage to talk to anyone on the stand. Impressive J class stand, super models, one day I’m sure a purchase will be made. They were also showing a new Folkboat model. A few sailing boats on other club stands. Am not into racing but no sign of the MYA. Good display by RNLI.
Perhaps building sailing boats is a minority activity, therefore not much representation. Don't buy model boats magazine, why would I?
Well done for putting it on. However, the catering was poor and this may be out of the organisers control. Coffee in cardboard and chocolate from a machine! It was interesting to see that one of the advertisers in the show guide was the local fish n chip shop! I think they may have done good business.
