Last week was round 3 of the Dragons , we had ten entries !!!! but I note we have fifteen Dragons in the club , I think for some we are short of a B Rig and next week I will give you all the info you need to get your rigs and sails sorted out so you can race and enjoy this fabulous class, I note that Martin is leading in the series but there is a long way to go. Don’t forget I have a Dragon in the box looking for a new owner It could be you !!!!
I have posted a new video of the month on the site for May , I know some of you have not seen these YouTube vids but they are always interesting so click on the link “VIDEO OF THE MONTH” and see what an interesting vid we have for this month, all the past videos are still on the page so if you missed one don’t worry and they are not all about sailing .
This weekend is round three of the Radio Marblehead at Scotland Farm, Yes we know it is a bank holiday and I have spoken before about the mistake , so please try not to spoil the party, and turn up and race , the weather is looking really good so lets try and make it a record turnout ,, If you don’t have a Marblehead, don’t worry just bring along your I.O.M you will not get any points but will enjoy racing against the formula one of model yacht racing, There may be one or two Dragon races after wards for those who are keen. For those who are interested in The Marblehead this weekend coming is the National Championships at Keighley in Yorkshire , Mick is going up to run their rescue boat and help out generally , so will get some great pictures and info about some very expensive boats if you want to follow the action click this link http://bit.ly/1nS480a Hope you enjoy it .
The weekend following is an all day event with I.O.M in the morning and Dragons in the afternoon , lets hope the weather is kind , It could be the best turnout of the year and we may well have another new member joining us, so lets all be around to welcome him.Sandwiches and Flasks at the ready.
For all of you who do Facebook we have a new facebook page , just seach it out on Google “Lincoln Model Yacht Club” and then LIKE it, you will be amazed ?/)$!\!?/ Thanks Jackie .
There has been a rumour at the club that some new boats ( or new second user boats ) are coming soon , unfortunately I am unable to say too much at this point and all I can say is watch this space, one other thing before I leave you all in piece is, we will be organizing some Wednesday work party’s over the next few weeks , to do some light tasks at the club so if you have mastered the knack of sending emails yet, I would be pleased to hear from you on any aspect to do with the club and sailing in general.
