Hi all from Belgium,
I would like to come to this event as my sister does not live too far away from the park.  Can someone give me the exact adres of the parking for the boat club please?
Many thanks Andre

It is pretty good for parking, even later in the day, and the path to the lake from the parking area is level enough not to shake all the joints loose on your superstructure! There is a narrow gauge railway track across the access road the path links to but I have never seen any issues the times I have been.

I expect we would have heard much gnashing of teeth about it if it was contrary!

Bob k....the smallest car transporting the largest boat

And (aiming for) the first gun fire battle between dreadnaughts, each using Geoff's unique gun fire system.
HMS Iron Duke vs HMS Agincourt.

Was it only last year that Ron Dean surprised me with a giant hull, and proceeded to load it with 29 kg of ballast?

Hi all. Knowing my "thread blindness", this has probably been asked lots before, but is there any way we could bring our caravan to the Mayhem meet ?  It's is only a small 2 berth, but, as I am partially disabled, would make life a lot easier for me. I look forward to your assistance all. Best wishes, Dave and Jan Weaver 😊

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a discount code. As for electric, most of the time, an extra leisure battery would suffice, but I do have a compact suitcase granny to fill my need for 240v mains.
Cheers all. Looking forward to it,

Can I ask a favour please?  When the camping discount (code?) becomes available, please post the news here.
I intend camping (likkle tent) as I did last year.
Only room for one boat on board.  I will have to make batteries last somehow.
