I mainly 'Run & gun' with any camera!
These were taken with a Canon PowerShot A470 on full auto - with nothing special at all!

I take lots of photos.... some are bound to be acceptable!

Mayhem at Wicksteed, this week!   May 27, 28

Fun, frolics,  'penguins', boats, tea, teeth, BBq's and other Mayhem!
Join the Mayhem fanatics at Wicksteed Park, Kettering for a weekend of sailing. Friendly atmosphere, good company and some seriously good boats that see the water!  Advice freely given, tea and coffee freely drunk, no serious competitions and good weather every year (chuckle).

Parking is 50yds from the lake,
Wicksteed Park charge for parking. See website for current prices - http://wicksteedpark.org/
BUT MAYHEM IS FREE.........TOTALLY FREE......

So if you feel like a change of scene, come down and have a sail.....that's what it's all about!

There will be no Robbie Atlantic this year I'm afraid. She requires a major overhaul and it's difficult to get parts,  meaning I'm having to fabricate them.
But hopefully I will be bringing another surprise boat for you all to sail!
