Fireboat/Vintage Model boat day has come and gone, I would like to say a big thank you to all who made the effort to come and visit us again, some more new faces, different model
s, and of course the Old Faithful supporters, I did enjoy watching and scoring the steering competition event, I told you it was something different and would need you to look at the course plan and work out what way round to sail to gain maximum points, one competitor stood out at having it sorted and finally got a well deserved win (not a fluke one eh Stephen) the result being a convincing slaughter this time, 3rd place Peter Ellis 95 points, 2nd and very well done in the conditions Graham Taylor with 107 points and way ahead of the field Stephen Ellis, with nearly 80 points lead on 186 points,Very Well Done mate you deserved it, (where's is the photo of the winning medal
We also had a medal
for the best boat on show, this was a resounding win and so well deserved with a superb Fireboat by Alan Jones, admired by many, we had plenty of boats running on the water a couple of nice Sea Queens, a large scale model
of a Huntsman with twin Honda 4 stroke engine
s, this one is from the King Lear MBC, it also sounds splendid when running, Mike Beesley also putting a 4 stroke motor
in his model
another that sounds superb when running.
A very big thank you all once again and thanks to my own few members
who turned up, John and Glenys Gregory and Mick Knowles, nice to see some support for home events.
Regards Pete D.
