Wednesday Series 1 – Regatta 1

Evening Mariners,

Tonight marked the first regatta of the Wednesday Series that will take place over the summer months. With 4 club boats in attendance and a guest boat (that definitely gave us a run for our money!) we went head to head in light conditions to start the series off with a bang.

The racing rules and running results will be added to the Racing section of the website in due course, but tonight’s results are posted below:

Thanks to those who attended. We will further discuss the future of the Wednesday series at our next club meeting on 5th June. This meeting will also pull together and finalise the proceedings for the Open Day & Rubber Duck Racing on 11th June.

2017 Calendar is LIVE

Happy Sunday afternoon Mariners!

Our 2017 calendar has now been drafted up and is available to view on the club site . We hope to see as many members and new members as possible join us for fun and friendly sailing at Millbrook Lake. We have also published the shows and events we intend to visit over the coming year.

Members meetings still continue on the first Monday of each month and as always attendance is appreciated.  Meetings are also a great opportunity to come down and meet other members if you are considering joining a model boat club. We are a growing club and encourage anyone with an interest in modelling or boating in general to come and see if we are for you!

Some meets are better supported than others and whilst we would all like to be able to meet every weekend the reality is that we all have other commitments to meet as well. The forums are a great place to arrange meets and discuss boating away from the lake. They have recently been overhauled so anyone (even non-members) can post questions and ideas so you don’t even need to leave the house to engage with the club.

We hope to see our members (old and new) at the Lake in the near future!

Thanks,

Mike

MMM Forums and Tidy Up

Afternoon all,

The Millbrook Model Mariners website has had a little bit of a tidy up ready for the upcoming 2017 calendar. I’ve also opened up the user forums to be used by the wider modelling community meaning you do not require a login to be able to post topics or reply to threads. It’s still a work in progress so any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Many Thanks,

Mike
