Model Boat Race (By The Book) in Portsmouth

Hey there.

An idea has been broached about racing those model boats & chavster craft.

Suggested venue : Hilsea Lido or a suitable stretch of water in Portsmouth.

Suggested date Sunday 22 Jan in the afternoon (could combine with Tim M's ribby trip?)

A Rule Book is being written as local powerboaters/ instructors may enter and we Know What They Are Like

OOD will be the very experienced Commodore Martin.

Roll Up Roll Up.

Post your entries and rule suggestions here!

'ello, 'ello, 'ello - wots all this then? Will 'ave to consult the Regs regarding this sort of fing. They will 'ave to keep their speed to below 10kn and their wash to a minimum.

Go for it Howard!

We are willing to go part shares in a boat with others ! Martin may have a spare craft so pm him if you want to join in.

Pete (Ribald) your rules shall be written down in triplicate and think you should come along to Monitor

Tony that is true. But the role of the OOD in this case will be very limited to
  • establishing the rules, start etc.
  • being completely ignored
  • and sorting out arguments afterwards.
During the actual race it will be every boat for Itself and it's fair to say that one entrant has already made it known that he will try Every Trick In The Book. (Not the Rulebook this time )

If it's too much to combine with the studenty spin we could make it next available...

And Clarence is a top idea BTW Tony

(Any real kiddies turning up will be automatically become team captains of the various teams.)

Hehehehehe

No guarantees peeps will tell the truth Rich!!!

But there will be a range of power sources. OOD may try to set limits.

And Someone is already Sanding Down a Prop.

You entering?
