Sunday sailing, 8.2.2015
This Sunday it was cold, dull with fog! and most important NO wind.
So there was no one there when I arrived, perhaps sailors had been and gone disappointed with the conditions, after a bite of lunch in the Cafe,saw someone on the landing stage so wandered across and met Norman Gibson who had arrived to pay his subs!.
He showed me his two new RTR tugs in the back of his car and then put this one on the water, the Barge is scratchbuilt from the packaging from the tugs, the other tug is the Southhampton of the same scale.
A note from the Exhibition Sec
To all the Club ‘Exhibitionists’
As it’s only a few weeks now to our first exhibition of 2015 I thought it might be a good idea to circulate all of those stalwarts who normally enjoy (if that’s the right word) putting a boat or two onto our club stand. I will be announcing the various events as usual at the club but it would be a great help if I know in advance who is likely to be able to commit to the various events for this year. Announcing the events on club nights only, as in the past, has proved to be a rather hit and miss affair when not everyone can always attend, so hopefully this will help. I appreciate that not everyone is on the internet so if you know of anyone who is interested but not contactable this way, or who has not exhibited before and would like to participate, please pass this on. I have a list of all the boats and people who have exhibited on our stand (to which this letter is circulated). If you are coming please fill in the information below and let me know as soon as you can. If you are exhibiting separately then it would still be helpful if I know. IMPORTANT – If you wish to enter a boat for judging at Ellesmere or Haydock, I have the application forms – I need to know now as the forms need to be send back ASAP. (Especially Ellesmere).
