    Sumners Ponds Model Show Cancelled

    • According to the Sumners Ponds Website the 2018 Model Show due to be held over the weekend 9th - 10th June has had to be cancelled. Apparently they currently have no Events Organiser and consider it is now too close to the show date for any new incumbent to the post to take up the task of organising it in a satisfactory manner.

    Frostbite Series 2017/18 race day 03 January 2018

    • Frostbite 4 attracted just six hardy sailors to clear the cobwebs out. A forecast of strong winds gusting to 40+ knots proved correct and provided some exciting racing using No 2 Rigs (less Terry sticking with No 1 Rig). Roger P. proved the master of the conditions winning 8 of the 11 races sailed. Frostbite 5 is planned for next Wednesday 10th January hopefully with a better turnout. Happy New Year to all.
