Sunday Sailing report comes from Pat, many thanks for taking the time Pat to send this over, much appreciated by our web audience.
Just another short update for the blog if you would be so kind.
Glorious sunny morning, water was flat calm, not really enough breeze for the sailboats but ideal for the fast electric and scale alike.
A goodly number were in attendance after holidays etc, usual jovial crowd.
I wont name names other than the results of the 500 race. There was a variety of model craft all shapes and sizes and a good time was had by all.
The 500`s had 2 races and after the usual banter, badinage and boasts the thrills and spills started, the first race, with close racing, seeing off Phils 500 after a racing incident!!
Carl D started for the second race but the floating weed added to the end result as much as the steering & racing skills.
The result after 2 races was, Terry in his new coloured lemon peril boat 1st, me 2nd, Vaughan 3rd, Carl 4th and Phil 5th & looking for a new motor.
Im on holiday for 1 week on Thursday. Sunday 18th being my next sail, weather permitting, we will run another 500 race or 2 starting 10.30. more boats the merrier.
Thanks to Mark who sat it out and did the scoring again.

Tuesday 13th October is our Club's AGM meeting.
I have received no official written or emailed comments or suggestions for the meeting Agenda, so all will run as programmed.
Hopefully there should be time afterwards for the Bring n buy sale of model boats and associated kit. So if you have anything gathering dust and you want rid, nows a good opportunity. OR if looking for a bargain, here could be your chance to pick up a real snip !
