Sunday Sailing 27/11/16.

A light Easterly wind again so coldish but flat calm so the fast boats could open up, the scale and smaller boats alike could sail with just enough breeze to use sail power so no excuses for not turning up. Terry and Paul early birds as usual had Tigger out and were making use of the fast conditions as I joined, with all our boats going well, for a change, till Paul hit something in the water and bent his shaft ( sounds painful). Trevor had a new Perkasa 36” MTB running in circles but with a re wire tweak the contra props pushed it along nicely and it looked good. At this point the ones who had stayed in bed for a lie in arrived. Carl sailed his Tug and lovely Samurai, Phil with his scale RAF boat with lights ran well as usual, Ed had a good time with his sailboat, managing to keep out of trouble. Don took advantage of the water and had some fast runs with his electric Cat after a slow start it was quick. Tony used his semi scale tug boat and there was plenty of water and frequencies…

Just a short report for the blog from last Sunday`s meet 13/11 Nice but cold morning, water pretty flat enabling some great fast runs by Pauls Cat, I had some pretty good fast runs with my Lynx too, both boats belting round and looking very stable. Ed and Tony talked about their respective enjoyable visit to the International Model Boat Show, Tony then sailing his nice tug like model. Don was there no boat butt kitted out with his super camera gear and took some photos some i hope can be loaded on the site too. John came to watch, as the more foolish among us took to the water for the 1st 500 race at 10.30. Phil like Canute in his chair at the waters edge, his grand son Piers entered for his first race, Terry the current champ, Vaughan with new servo fitted, Paul Quiet but ready to rock, Carl and myself apprehensive and awaiting Terry`s count down. 321 off like the marine charge of the Light Brigade fearless to the first buoy, Phil got stuck after 1 lap, Piers took my boat out but s…
