Over the weekend 14th-15th March 2015

Over the weekend there wasn't a lot going on Saturday, Jonathan was there with his Dad and had his repaired Tug on the water, His Carer had dropped it on a previous visit!!.
Dad, David had made a nice job of repairing the smashed bows and it went well on the water again until the steering went awry, 
It turned out to be a missing screw on the steering servo, not a real problem.


The Sunday Steering was not as popular this Sunday perhaps some were visiting their Mothers!.

                       

Whilst on the round of the lakes saw one of our members (Richard) who races his Fiesta yacht on the Fiesta racing Sunday normally), on his real yacht and having a good time with the nice breeze on the day!.




After a walk round the lakes returned to find John Goddard there with his fast electric's.
Didn't try to video them as they are too fast and freezing hands don't help.



Gives you some idea of their speed if you haven't see them on the lake.

John's novel wheeled stand 

As you can see made mostly with kitchen waste pipe, saves carrying it doesn't it, nice one John!.

Monday I was at the lake and was surprised to see some members of the committee there in the cafe, waiting out the rain which was quite heavy, they said they were going to try out the new large Gazebo the club has bought and here is a sneak preview,

Big hey!, going to send me some pictures when they've  finished sorting it out!.

That's all for now folks.

Update from Al the Comm
This is the new Gazebo there are sides to it, but not fitted today due to the bad weather!.





Nice isn't it, be nice for Bugsworth Basin won't it!.

    1. When videoing the steering comp, it would be beneficial to see a map of what they are attempting to do. just a thought
