A reminder of warmer days
The Autumn sun in shirtsleves seems a long time ago
An interesting craft arrived. The big wheels mean .............
...........it can drive straight off the bank into the water.
Another strange craft!
classic pond yacht meets modern fast catamaran
More yachts on the pond........
................and some real wind at last
Alan (Albert) and Alan discuss why it goes forwards but not backwards
Ken's jet boat with leaks repaired
Even more yachts
Malcolm's Perkasa showing improved performance from a smaller propeller
Andrew with his listing fishing boat
Malcolm's dog 'Jasper' is not frightened by crocodiles!
Late Autumn - no wind
The Easton's fleet
visitors assemble at the pond side
An updated plastic Crash tender
A Moonglow and a Southampton tug
Another fine MTB

The organisers (one hiding) with some of the boats

Nick's 34 inch Huntsman 31 needs motorising

One of the 20 pairs of 60mm x 60mm solar panels
The 500 series solar motor showing possible support for the soldered connections
The soldered connections to the copper trace on the panels would also benefit from support to prevent failures.
Now looking forward to seeing what boats members have created
A Happy New Boating Year from all to all
