It's windy here on the A5 side of Northampton ……. so it must be windy at Wicksteed. Therefore what is the start time for the Gazebo flying competition?


Be warned I'm taking photo's for Marine Modelling International so please try and look partially human!

The weather for tomorrow doesn't look good and my new model isn't quite finished. As I shall also be forced to spend this whole afternoon in the pub with best mate Irish Dave I shall most likely see you lot on Sunday. Have fun in the meantime and I hope the weather-girl is wrong (but do you need sunshine to get thoroughly ratted?).

Well WHAT a day, seriously, you really should have come today!!!!

Started off wet... and then just got wetter and wetter, until late afternoon! But boats were on
 the water all day, good selection of 'speed boats' warships, scale, fun & yachts.
(Note to self, speed boats and warships don't mix, ie. Liberty ships don't like being mounted across aft cargo hatch!)

The first attempt at the steering course resulted in a capsizing... and it wasn't even me at the helm!

Ian put on a very noisy 'flash bang' display and promptly (and willingly ) blew up two of his own
boats and covered the lake with confetti! Great stuff!

Deans Marine début his new boat, ten years in the making, the Dalvenie (spelling) And Ron let
me have a go! I didn't sink it or get it tangled up in something, as is my usual modus operandi....
but I did "touch" Tony's Japanese / Russian destroyer after he had just 'bent my ear' for
someone else doing the same thing 10 minutes earlier! BTW: The Dalvenie is a sweet ride!

There was also another surprise event (hereafter refereed to as "The 2014 Incident") which left
everyone speechless and agog.... but will never be refereed to again on this forum!

At about 4:30 a "squall" blew in, the likes of which I've NEVER seen or experienced ever before in my entire life! After a bright, warm, sunny spell (first of the day), a wind blew up with
such ferocity that I was completely soaked in the  10 seconds that it too me to 'run' 10 yards
between SteamboatPhil & Stavros tent and the Mayhem Marqee. What A Downpour!!!! And the rain was freezing too. Thanks again to Steve, Nick & Nigel for hanging on to the Mayhem Marqee
for dear life ... now referred to as the 'pole & rags'! The Peterborough club's flying marquee
wasn't as good as previous years...

..... told you you should have come!

Photos to follow shortly!

All of the weather forecasts for that area tomorrow look fair to good. Boat is finished and so I hope to see you all tomorrow.
BTW did you know that "kettering" is defined as the imprint left on the buttocks after sitting naked in a wicker chair? Not a lot of people know that............
