I would welcome a report on the first day of the event.

I am contemplating a Sunday visit but as it is a 250ml round trip I would appreciate some actual knowledge of the event.

Well, a first day report as requested!
Overcast, with a few spots to start, but cleared to be a very nice day. A very good turnout of clubs, Stevenage, Dover, Peterborough, luton, welwyn, model hovercraft, Wicksteed. I'm sure there was another, but cannot remember! Most of the show was cobbled together on the day, but it wwnt very well, with over 100 boats on display. A good amount if second hand gear on sale, especially as the show is primarily  and model aircraft show,  but plenty of boat stuff and radios at decent prices! Upwards of 50 boats on the water over the first day eith Handy Andy spectacularly flipping his uc boat during and afternoon demo run!
Lots of sailing boats out as it a good yacht lake. I think everyone enjoyed the first day. If you are coming on Sunday, tell the entrance person you are midel boats, and they will direct you a dedicated boaters carpark towards the lake.
Hopefully, sunday will be even warmer, but I suspect quieter public wise!
For those on fb, there are pics on there, or search for Luton model boat and look on there

Twas a much busier day on the Sunday. Park management are very happy with the event overall, and very impressed with the low aspect organisation we had! Figures seem to be double last year for the same event on the Saturday, and even higher for the Sunday!

The numbers were well up on Saturday and good weather, as a regular attendee of mayfly, I would say the numbers were ten fold on last year and 4x the amount of traders , all in all it was a great show with loads to see , even though  we had to pay for camping the campsite was well run and organised with a proper warden.
looking forward to the next one.
