OPEN DAY SUCCESS at Scotland Farm

 

P1040367

Lincoln Model Yacht club held its open day on Sunday 8th March and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of visitors who came to try out this addictive sport/hobby . It was a little chilly early on and a course for the less experienced skipper was set up close to the south bank , and a fairly long race course with a windward / leeward theme was set up for the more experienced , with some great racing Young and old alike came to try , and all were pleasantly surprised by the skill needed to get the best out of the yachts , many members were on hand to help and advise and the club welcomed RC yachts all the way from Kent with a selection of Joysway products including the Very popular Dragon Force and also a Catamaran not seen before at Scotland Farm .  RC yachts also had a large variety of spares on hand and had a lot of good advise to newcomers to the Sport . Also on show, fresh from the manufacturer was the latest I.O.M from C/M yachts, its owner John Tushingham was very pleased and it will get its first trial in Malta in two weeks time when a number of British skipper attend the Maltese open championship, which two Members of the Lincoln club have been invited to attend.

The rain came down around 130pm but did not dampen spirits , Most dragons were down to B suits and the I.O.M soon followed . Tea, coffee, pork pie , and some loverly cup cakes from Tricia Dinmore kept our spirits high as the rain came down. All in all a very enjoyable day was had by all with many smiling faces and possible some new members for the club which will take membership way beyond the 30 mark . Pictures below are not the greatest quality but give you an idea of what went on .

IOM Championship Round 3 01 March 2015

The March winds do blow – and its only the 1st of the month. A 20 – 25 mph south westerly had everyone in C rigs. The slightly gusty conditions found weak points on boats and turned slight bumps into serious collisions. Of the 9 boats that started the event only 3 remained sailing at the end.
