  Have a great time, everyone. I would have been down, but it's Ladies' Day at Kelso races so I'm being dragged along there. I lost interest in horses when I discovered racing cars, and that was a very long time ago.

Well just arrived home after a 300 round trip , a great day left this morning in sunshine but we drove too quickly I think and it could not keep up so arrived with a tiny little drizzle of rain, however the Sun caught up with us and was a perfect day..  Pics to Follow.


Thanks to Martin and Gang and the Wicksteed club for sorting this event out..

Evening All!  :-)

Saturday, May 26 - Well what a GREAT day.... and to be honest, totally unexpected Sunshine!
Weather started out dull, damp and miserable, well around Peterborough anyway!

A lot of people were already on site by the time we pitched up .... mechanical problems, couldn't roll out of bed, nearly all the trolleys were missing from Tescos, could find the breakfast wraps on the McDonalds, blaa, blaa, etc.  Anyway, the girls soon got Phil's tea urn on the go and things soon stated to look better.

There was always a good number of boats on the water all day, John says he counted 25 at one stage! The yacht boys had a particularly good day even though the it wasn't very windy and thankfully not choppy. We also found out what the "Secret 10" was about..... battle Springers! Not as exciting as it sound but it was a great laugh! Some really nice boats on show and on the water, two that I particularly liked were a couple of Brushless Sea Queens (?) that effortlessly flew up-&-down the lake. Both had really nice paint jobs that made you smile with the bright sunshine caught them in a turn.  O0 Of course the show stopped when BobK and C3P0 turned up with HMS Agincourt, or as Bob called it 'Agin & court' as the vessel splits in two for transportation!  :-)

Great to meet up with old friends and meet new one....like JayDee new 'White Star Line' captains  beard (sponsored by Birds Eye Fish Fingers)!  Thanks for coming up and introducing yourself, makes it all worthwhile. André from Belgium was a great chap, thanks for the hand delivered beer!  :-) ( Sorry if I didn't get your name right, I don't have an problem remembering faces or names... but it seems I do have an issue with putting  the names to said faces! )   :embarrassed:

Wicksteeed club had once again done a wonderful job again and the place looked great, especially when the sun came out, thanks chaps, we all thank you. Also to Many thanks to John ( Celestine ) for the magnanimous donation to a whole table of slightly used SLA batteries... that gone in less than an hour!...... which had the detonator in it again john?!  %)

... and now, some photos....
