        Sumners Ponds Model Show 2017 10 June 2017

        • The fifth Sumners ponds model show takes place this weekend just outside Horsham. As in previous years Phoenix will be present with a large display of boats. In addition there will be flying displays of planes, kites and quad-copters together with tanks, railways and electric/IC car racing. If you have an interest in any aspect of modelling then there should be something for you, bring the family as it's a great day out. Please go to [2] for more information.

          Medway Queen Review of the Fleet 15 April 2017

          • The review is another, rather posh, name for a model boat show where the models will be displayed on the MQ herself or in their workshop. We will have a small stand on the MQ. The weekend will be a great opportunity to see the work accomplished so far, hear about their future plans and see some great models - well worth a visit. The address for the event is: Medway Queen Visitor Centre, Gillingham Pier, Pier Approach Road, Gillingham, Kent ME7 1RX. See MQ website [3]

            Alfold Charity Model boat Show 29 July 2017

            • The Alfold CMBS is with us again but a couple of months later so as to avoid clashes with other events and hopefully attract more traders and visitors. As in previous years Phoenix MMC will have a stand (probably the size of three gazebos). It's a good fun day out and well worth a visit. The proceeds go to support the charity Care Ashore, see [4] for more details of this worthwhile organization supporting retired Seafarers.

              Frostbite Series 2016/17

              • The Series is now complete. The weather curtailed the planned programme allowing only seven Race Days to be sailed, therefore only the best 5 results to count. A total of 15 competitors sailed, with 7 completing 5 races. Congratulations to David A. on a convincing win and Roger P on second place. Our thanks go Keith and Ian braving the cold to act as RO`s.

                • Once again the weather got the better of us with the ice preventing the final race day taking place. The Series is now complete with only 7 Race Days being sailed. Final results can viewed under Frostbite Series.

                    Frostbite Series 2016/17 race day 11 January 2017

                    • The first Frostbite of 2017 (7th in the Series) took place in blustery conditions, making for some excellent racing. Only seven sailors took advantage of a sunny and mild day allowing 10 races to be completed.

                              • The 4th Race Day only attracted seven sailors on what proved to be a fine racing day. A light to moderate, sometimes fluky, wind saw some interesting and close racing led as always by David A. Our thanks to Ian and Gordon for conducting proceedings.

                                • Twelve boats turned out for the 3rd Frostbite. With a light variable wind and leaves drifting across the course causing some frustrating racing. Well done to David and Grahame who managed to master the conditions better than most. Thanks to Keith and Ian for looking after us.
