Agreed!  Andy & Poppy were their ever exuberant selves, a real joy to be around.   :-))
( Andy was our 'range safety officer..... and prmptly gave a very good example of 'how NOT to run a superfast electric boat in crowded waters!' )

Thanks again for organising the new Mayhem Merch Andy, ( Merchandising for us old folk! )
  Here's my sweatshirt, I haven't even had a chance to wear yet ..... on the right!

Well being only a few feet away from him in the lake at the time, I know exactly what was said  %)

I'm very pleased that your run of rubbish weather days continues! Looks like lots of fun was had messing around with boats and ships and all  sorts of exciting water craft. I had intended to be there but finances and vehicle poorliness caused a decision to cancel.


I look forward to joining you next year!

For those who missed it, I’d made a truly terrible trophy for the winner of our straight running competition. Unfortunately the person who maintained Phil’s losing streak was my fiancé Poppy, so it’s now back in my house again…

Video from Mighty Leo! ....


Model Boat Mayhem 2023 - we had such a great weekend we decided to do a video to let others know what the event is all about. Total mayhem at times, excellent fun with a friendly bunch of model boaters!

Wow what a great weekend!


I’ve just managed to recover from all the fun and everything is back into its storage for next time.


I’d like to thank the Mayhem Organisation Committee (Martin, Klunk, Phil and Andy) for all their help in making this the best Mayhem ever! After last year we decided to make the event more ‘organised’ but retain the standard format of free sailing. I believe we achieved this and will be planning very soon for next year which will involve a special anniversary event. Watch this space :-))


This year many would have noticed that we had a new entrance and organised car parking system which was unfortunately implemented at the last minute so we didn’t have time to update the park map for everyone- we will endeavour to make sure it’s updated in time for next year. I want to thank the entire rota of Wicksteed Park Club for brilliantly providing the control and support for the car parking. They did a stunning job considering we have never done this before. I would also like to thank Wicksteed Park for their support with the car park set up and security team as back up.


Great to see Mrs Mayhem and Little Miss Mayhem, LMM looked really chuffed with her hovercraft from Jag!
Many thanks to both the Wicksteed Ladies, Bill, Ruth, and Gina for the wonderful refreshment support.


It was fantastic to see such a variety of models on the water showing the amazing range of types in our hobby, everything from scale, yachts, straight runners, to I/C and hovercraft. The amount of new faces young and old was incredible and hopefully keeps our hobby growing.


This year we had three traders and I’d like to thank them all for their continued support- Deans Marine, Flag Man, and Palaform. We also had the support of the RNLI for a second year so a thank to Baloo and his fellow lifeboaters for displaying their models and highlighting the importance of the RNLI.


AndyN was a great example of bringing new ideas to the event and the ‘merch’ was a great success, my jumper was certainly very well made and looked the part.


Klunk aka Pete Carmen had a nice touch this year with the signing in book, I hope you all had a chance to sign it, not only is it a nice touch but gives a great record of our show.


And finally, a big thank you to all who visited, sailed, and displayed, without you we wouldn’t have a show.
See you all soon and here is to Mayhem at Wicksteed 2024 :-))

I agree with Nick. Andy did a great job with the merch (I suspect Poppy had a hand in there) and advertising.
A massive personal thankyou to all wiki members who helped out in the carpark and tea tent.

Mighty Leo's video brought it home to me how many extra gazeebos there were which meant more groups and more fun being had!


I bet Saturday night spun some tales!

I was so glad to be back at Mayhem after a long absence, and what a Mayhem! My sincerest congratulations to all those involved in organising and running this fabulous event.


My little Victorian navy has not gone to sea for some time, and it was a great pleasure to sail them again in such illustrious company. Thanks to you all!
