Good day at the lake, 21.2.2017

A fair crowd at the lake today considering it wasn't that bright!
Still it wasn't raining until later on in the afternoon and there was a bit of wind for the mostly yachtsmen in attendance!.
 






Whose's boat stand is that?, an accident waiting to happen!. Safety first at all times hey!.



There were a few Tugs on the water, Al the Comm here is also a submariner, having a change today though!.



Though the tugs were all it one end there is no segregation intended just that the Yachtsmen get carried away at times and put in a lot more walking than the Tug men and on average seem younger!. 


Well that's it for today, don't forget it's Ellesmere Show on the 4th & 5th March, see previous post for details, always a good show and plenty of boats and trade stalls.
If you've had enough models you can always check out the museum as well!.

Sunny day, 7.2.2017.

Today at the lake it was nice and sunny and there was even a bit of a breeze, though not an Alan Breeze!.





Lunch time!.




One lone motorised.

Will post the 2017 diary as soon as I receive it from Andy the Sec!.

Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th!.

Had an E-mail from our friends at Colwyn Bay MBC, to the effect that they are now installed on the new venue in the park next to the old lake venue. Might go down there in the next couple of weeks to see what they now have, will wait for some better weather though.

Slack week at the lake,17-20th Jan.

Been slack at the lake this week in more ways than one!.
Tuesday and Thursday sailors abandoned their boats and most of them retired to the Cafe.
It was quite cold, but that doesn't usually deter these stalwarts, it was the lack of any wind at all!, on both days!


I heard that three of the lads had a trip to Housemartin Sails on the Wirral, and had a good time and got some good bargains there.

Our friends at Colwyn Bay MBC look as though they are getting stuck into their refurbishment at their new venue, the lake in the park next to the old lake we have been sailing on previously!.
Might be worth a trip to see their efforts, when the weather improves of course!.

Wet week in January 2017.

Well 2017 has come in with a soggy wet week, but at least its starting to get lighter in the morning and evenings, so those of us with winter syndrome (that's most of us isn't it) can look forward to better times!.
Just to keep the little grey cells working here is a quiz for you and its just that, no prizes and no need to tell me your guesses, I took the pictures so already know the answers.
Should be easy for the older members who had been coming down to the lake for years and know everyone's boats and models. 




The 'For sale' section is empty so if you have any boats you want to sell to make room for more builds, all you need to do is send me an e-mail with a picture of the item and brief description and how much you would like for same. Don't forget what you want and what some one is prepared to give could be different!. Won't cost you anything though, so what have you got to lose.

Its that time again when your renewals are due, so if you've not spent up over Christmas give Andy the Sec your money at the end of the month!.
