    Hi Nerys .. no the hull was built by club members from the plans over several months time on saturdays roughly monthly (scratch built) ... about an average of ten members per session helping .. there is supposed to be a draw to see who gets in when the time comes .. Garth has volunteered to work on installing shafts, props etc .. covid 19 has made it to difficult to get together to finish the project .. also only a little work gets done at a session (about 2-3 hours at a time) hull was fiberglassed after building it .. should be a great model when finished ..brokey

    Had a great regatta. Weather cooperated, hot but dry, about 25 boats competing. Many spectators watched and asked questions. Everyone looking forward to next years regatta. Precision steering event was challenging.
    Predicted log event had several very close times within 4 seconds. Winning entra was off by 1 second. 😎

    Good fun on Saturday. A bit windy & sticky hot but overall a very pleasurable day. Sunday a total loss due to the rain & cold weather that moved in Sat night.
    Kids running pusher tugs Saturday for charity had a great time as well.
