Sunday club 500 racing, 18/2/18.

Sunny morning slight breeze blowing into the bank. Terry and Paul having set out the course with thanks the 1st race took place before the official scorer Ed arrived. Sorry for the lack of comments this week as I tried to keep my boat out of trouble for a change and it paid off but I cant recall who broke down, crashed rolled or whatever. In BAFTA style the nominees were Terry, Paul, Phil, Piers, Vaughan and me. The results were Race 1 Terry, me, Paul, Phil, Vaughan & Piers. Terry looking more competitive this season and Piers less so. Race 2 Piers bounced back, me, Phil, Terry, Paul, Vaughan not starting as a burned out speedo stopped play. Race 3 Piers again, Terry, me, Phil and Paul Race 4 me, Piers Paul, Terry and Phil. There were the usual bad luck stories of boats being rolled over etc. Paul used his new Jaffa coloured boat but suffered bad luck, Piers complaining of bad luck being rolled over, Phil having bad luck mainly turning his boat over by himself, Vaughan having …

I have been asked to put on a Model Lifeboat Display for the 150th anniversary of the Angle Pembrokshire Wales,Station, 11th and 12th AUGUST 2018
this will be in a marquee close to the water so you can chose to display on or off the water or both.Please note if sailing your models it will be in SALT water.I know some do not like using their models in the sea
I am inviting Model Lifeboat owners from all over the country,together with other types of models and quite a few have expressed their interest already.
There will be camping nearby, for tents motorhomes and caravans,and there is also a pub nearby and another in the village as well as a cafe for your food or possibly accomodation if wanted. I cannot guarantee a hook up,but obviously we will have an electricity supply in the Marquee.If you prefer,there is a camping site in the village about 10 minutes away.

1st Sunday sail 2018.

1st Club 500 race of 2018 Sunday 14th 9.45 am, dull weather, biting cold wind across the lake, 4 degrees C. The usual lads turned up bright and cheerful, Piers was awarded and presented with the winners trophy for 2017. He was congratulated and immediately bought a new motor for the ensuing year. I`m sure Phil can get it fitted for the next races. It was agreed by those present that this would be a practice race until the new boats and motors had been scrutinised. By the time the course had been set the cold was beginning to get through the layers of clothing so 3 races were deemed enough. Don took some photos which we hope to publish soon and stalwart Ed did his usual greatly appreciated scoring, no gloves nor hat and open necked shirt!! In the 1st race 6 of us set out on the count of Terry, my brand new model being turned over in the first bend which seemed to cheer up most taking part. The racing thereafter being competitive and mainly clean and enjoyable the results were, after …

Steve [CMBC Secretary] thank you for sorting the membership and your effort during the year keeping us all on track. I hope the guys return their forms quickly. Just a short report on the most memorable Christmas dinner held at The Turf Carvery last Tuesday. Firstly we had no Trophy`s to hand out, on trophy night, so that was deferred. Terry was thanked for sorting the arrangements and we all having pre paid our deposit settled the balance with him. The Turf had phoned to check that we were still going which we confirmed though there was no snow as its on the A5. After a long time and not many staff around we received the pre ordered starters which we all enjoyed. Then as no staff were about we cleared our own plates from the table. Eventually we were told the earlier shift had not cooked any meat and all we had was what was on show a bit of Pork and Gammon. Terry looked under pressure at this point and had his chat to the Management but in true British fashion we got on with it and a…
