Domain Name Change

Good Evening All,

In October, we will be transferring the clubs domain name (website address) from www.millbrookmodelmariners.club to www.millbrookmodelmariners.co.uk.

This is due to the increased cost of a “.club” domain name.  The new address is live now and currently diverts to the existing address, however, this will eventually cease and you will only be able to access the club site via the new address.

There may be a short period of offline time whilst the transfer takes affect, which will be advertised on the clubs Facebook page.

Thankyou for your patience during the handover.

Mike

Wednesday Series 1 – Regatta 5

Good Evening Mariners,

Tonight we saw 5 and a half boats (Sorry Chris!) take to the water with 5 IOM’s participating in the evenings racing. Very changeable conditions prevailed tonight with rolling mist sometimes obscuring view of the marks completely.

Sadly, we were only able to use 3 marks tonight as one of the four buoys laid appears to have been taken. The weight used to secure the buoy to the lake bed was deposited on the decked area suggesting that the buoy has been removed rather than freeing itself from its position.

However, this didn’t stop a good evenings racing with mixed results throughout the fleet. Tonights scores and season standings can be seen on the Racing page.

Thanks all, see you next week for a 6:30pm (ish) start!
