Vintage Club 30th September

The last Sunday of the month and things were pretty busy at the Clapham Model Yacht Club today. The Vintage Club were there in force, drawing a reasonable crowd with a wide array of classic model yachts and even a few new ones for the younger attendants.

There was even a documentary crew at the pond, adding some glamour to CMYC.

Derek also bought 2 new Solings he has been kindly building. So I now have a boat I can race and there’s also one that can be used as a club boat. Hopefully, this will help attract some new members. It also meant that we had six Solings on the water today and even though the wind was pretty erratic we managed to get a few races in. Ted was ahead in most of these, but the boats were for the most part very close. In fact, the racing was so close that there were members saying that they preferred racing the Solings to the One Metres, so it will be interesting to see what everyone decides to race next weekend.
