Members might be interested in the origin of my latest caption entry.
It was taken at our annual Club Challenge  Competition held a few weeks ago. With thanks to Chris Monk.

This challenge is to rescue a barge that has broken away from its moorings and presents a threat to shipping (think Thunderbirds meets the RNLI)

The contest is a timed run for single skippers and teams of up to 3 skippers. The idea is to make a boat or boats capable of retrieving the barge and stopping it at a dock we will provide. The barge is 900mm long 200mm wide.

There is no limit on motors, batteries or design, just as long as your rescuing boat is less than 18 long. You can push, pull or tow it into position but if you sink it you are going in to get it and you are deemed to have sunk yourself! There are strong hand rails on both the bow and stern for you to couple on to and steel plates if you fancy using magnets. There will also be some metal bollards.

The competition format is this:

The barge is held to a marker buoy at one end of the pond and the competitor or team is at the other end. When the word is given and the stopwatch started the barge will be released and the team will sail to get it. You will then bring it back under your boats power to the dock avoiding any obstacles and stop with the barge alongside the quay between two markers. The clock stops when the barge is stationary. Quickest time wins.

This is not so much a test of outright speed and power but of control and communication between the team members.

It's later in life, and Gulliver reminisces about liliput, then he remembers his doctors advice about getting water on the knee, and then he remembers he is not as young as he used to be and what effect running water has on his bladder - oops - to late

I know you spent ages altering the length of the steering toggle on the transmitter, but you do know it only works ABOVE the water.

The skipper tried new and innovative ways of getting under the low bridge outside the harbour.
