Right ladies and gentlemen, not long now before the big weekend! Hooray! :-))


Some updates...


This year I have been asked by Martin if I'd run the steering competition that usually operates from the wooden quay to the windsock in the lake, and from the suggestions from other organisers we will have a special section for those feeling brave enough! A blind-man steering competition! You choose your mate to guide your boat around whilst you are blind folded. A simple timed event and the best time wins.


All Mayhemers who have a Victorian/Edwardian era warship are invited to bring them along for a second year to get as many turn-of-the-century warships on the water as last year it was spectacular.


There will be a tombola run by the Wicksteed Park MBC secretary, Maureen, loads of prizes to be won, I know that there was a battle several years ago between two Mayhemers to win the KGV Tamiya kit- wasn't there Klunk!


As usual for those interested there will be a Bring and Buy sale hosted by two members of WPMBC, speak to them on the day and tell them what you want to sell it for and they'll do their best for you for 10%.


Best Photo of the weekend- so bring your cameras


Night Sailing- bring your lights!


Meet Martin and family in the Mayhem tent for Tea and Coffee with biscuits- bring some money!

Loudest shirt competition!!! I jest- we all know Martin wins this! :}


Springer Wars- I will have my revenge from the second Mayhem year when I was knocked out by the opposing team when I was rammed and my battery lead fell off!
Springer Tug-of-war, and Springer football will hopefully make a come back this year with Springer Tugs.


Saturday night BBQ


Free sailing


Warship sailing


Yacht Sailing


Tug sailing


Vintage Sailing


Straight running sailing


Plastic magic sailing


Sailing, sailing, sailing...!!! %%


Come along and enjoy yourselves.
