Towing comes to Etherow!.

Towing comes to Etherow!.

Thursday at Etherow (18.8.16) saw a nice big boat that a friend of Garth's had bought from down in Norwich!.
As you can see it's split down the middle for better handling and transporting, I was told that there had been a middle section making a total length of 12ft but the seller had already sold the middle section?, who would want just the middle section I ask myself, perhaps someone is going to re-enact the D-Day landings with a Mulberry Dock hey!.
Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite for a new venture at the lake perhaps!.
I've even refurbished my Wyeforce over the last couple of days as I'm all for a new venture at Etherow, perhaps if the chap doesn't bring it again, it will have created an interest for towing.
Not everyone's cup of tea, but it's a club for all sorts and interests, perhaps on different days that the Steering/Yachting and fast electrics!.

Getting started, fills with water so you don't have a great heavy weight to lug around!.



Here comes "Retriever" to add a bit more power.




Here comes the big one!, you could sit in the rescue boat and this one would pull you round the lake!


No problem!.

There you have it, a nice change on the day, not everyone's cup of tea but what a terrible world it would be if we were all the same.

Last but not least there were these couple of nice boats being sailed by a family, which is another nice thing to see on the landing stage, where is the future Committee coming from without new blood in the hobby, nice to see youngsters out and about instead of in front of the telly!.


A blast from the past, me with Bob Abell's, "Jeanie Deans" and look who is in the back ground Charlie Ricardo!, he was a nice chap!.

Tuesday afternoon,16.8.2016.

Tuesday afternoon was a nice sunny day and there were a few sailors there after the usual Tuesday sailors had gone home!.

Here is Norman with his patent launcher


A nearer view in case you fancy one yourself!


And another of his nice naval ships, is it right calling a naval ship nice!.


There was also his mate Irvin that always comes with him on the days they attend.

His boat a nice ocean going tug.

John has got another boat nearly completed but there were a few teething problems, but with his expertise he soon had it running nicely even though it was not to his usual speed.



But this one of his, is fast!!!.

Will get a complete picture of his new boat for you next time I see him at the lake, you will be thrilled to see how well it sits on the water.

Summer Regatta Sunday 24.7.2016.




Etherow Model Boat Club Summer Regatta

Monday, 18 July 2016

Al The Comm would be very appreciative if some of the members were available to get to the lake early this next Sunday to help put up the gazebo, stalls and tables for the Open Day.
As most of you know it can get very busy parking on ordinary Sundays.
 This Sunday will be no exception with more members , kids off school now and the weather seems to be getting better!, still won't dwell on that in case I put the mockers on it!!.
So if you get down to the lake it will be to your advantage all round won't it!.

Two cannibals were having dinner, 'your wife makes a great roast', says one. 
'I know' says the other, 'But I'm going to miss her!'.
