Trip to Colwyn Bay Regatta

Yesterday 22nd of July 2012 saw a good turnout of Etherow members at the Colwyn Bay Mayor's Regatta.
This yearly event was bigger that ever this year, proving its popularity, with more clubs represented thought the turnout of traders was not very good. I heard a CB member talking to the raffle stall man saying the a trader had sent a gift voucher to add to the raffle prizes as he couldn't make it, at least he made an effort.
The lack of traders didn't detract from the overall show and a good time and weather was enjoyed by all, you can always tell can't you when people don't rush away after a quick look round.

Here are a few pictures from on the day.
Another version of John Teal's "Jojo"

 A nice collection from the Southport stand.




The next one's are for George Barrett, Narra boat complete with riveting!



I was very interested with this version of an "Our Lass 11", which was very well detailed and I took a lot of pix's of this to copy the detailing for mine.


On the way home I stopped at Rhyl Air Show, just it time to see the acrobatics and then these fighter planes did their fly pass, in fact passed a few times, what a noise and at that speed I suppose in action you don't hear the noise cos you are already dead! 



So all in all a good day and another event where Etherow could show it's banner.
Looking forward to next year, perhaps get some tables there next time.
