OK new date mooted for this is Saturday 18th March with Sunday in reserve if the weather is 'orrible!

Being as some of us will be out on the Friday night we may need the fresh air to recover.

The model boats are all in top form and raring to go any time at all.

Please check your diaries and let us know how you are fixed that weekend.

OOD will be Martin of RSYC

Shenanigans to be expected so near to Paddy's Day.

Hilsea Lido has been proposed as a popular venue?

If you haven't yet got a boat there are some bargains to be had on EBay !

No chance Chris. I'm getting something with a very high scale speed and will beat everything in its class.
