Sub Day - Barrow in Furness , Sunday 7th September 2014
« on: February 03, 2014, 02:22:03 pm »

Seen last year!

I've put this in as a new separate topic to avoid any confusion.

For the details see the previous thread.

All model submariners welcome.

See you there!

I've just re-posted Dave J's post which was in last years thread:

"The lake at Barrow has had a serious leak which has had a repair cycle which should be successful, but the water level at present is between 15-20 inches deep, the lake is ground water fed and with evaporation from the summer months the lake will still be shallow by the time of the regatta and will not be expected to be back to the normal level until next year. The lake is weed free and sailing will be limited to the depth of water available- (a challenge to submarine models)"

We will have an update on the water level after we meet up at Haydock Park, this weekend, but the last news from him is that the water level is about 18" and stable. So will probably be just about OK.

An update, as promised.

The water level is OK and the Barrow in Furness MBC sub day event will be run as planned. We do a "bring and share" buffet lunch in our comfy club house so bring something along and see you there!

Oh and the Park toilets are only about 100yds away.
