I’ll be charging salvage if I have to rescue a club 500. Fee doubles if I’m not already wearing waders when it requires rescuing %)

You got Poppy her own waders?

Andy's excellent write up!

May the 27th to 28th sees the annual Model Boat Mayhem forum sailing weekend at Wicksteed park, Kettering. 
This is the largest dedicated model boat meeting in the UK, usually seeing over 300 attendees from all over the country.

This is a completely free sailing event, which means that the lake is available for use all day on the Saturday and Sunday with few restrictions. The event is free to get in to, however the park does charge £6 a day parking fee. Refreshments are available and there is a barbecue on the Sunday morning, there is also camping available which is booked through the park’s website.

All forms of model boat are welcome, though the only IC powered models allowed are those from Stevenage Model Boat Club for a 30 minute demo each day. Please don’t bring any other IC models intending to run them, we shall have to disappoint you.

There is a bring and buy for all forms of models and related items, and if needed there is plenty of room for gazebos lakeside.

Aside from the IC demo, there is also demonstrations of Straight Running boats - models with no radio fitted that are sent between two people in the lake to score points between markers. These are just two examples of things to see at what is an amazing weekend.

In addition to the model show, there’s also the park amusements for the whole family. Rc cars are welcome in the park outside the lake area, though we can accept no responsibility for them.

Good news to add, those who have been to Mayhem the last couple of times may be aware of my mate who sells brand new SLA batteries at prices vastly below rrp - he’s going to be there again this year with a very good stock. He’s just given me seven boxes of batteries to store, mostly 7, 14 and 26ah and all 12v. Don’t know what else he has to bring but we’ll see in due course


As usual, they’ll be for sale from my stand in the middle of the lakeside :-))

Hi All Deans Marine will be attending the event as always , we will not be having the full trade stand at the lakeside, stock will be in our trade van on site. due to the size and weight of moving at all, getting older, we hope to release our latest model kit at the show,  the Vosper 73ft A.S.R, at 1/24th scale Looking forward to meeting you all again RegardsDeans Marine
