The first Cotswold Model Club fun day took place today with 11 sailors and 6 partners / wives totalling 17 in all, enjoying the warm and mainly windy conditions without too much weed.
The races took the form of elimination of the slowest and then a restart with the three fastest battling it out in both the one metres and then later the small boats.
A draw then took place and pairs of sailors teamed up to race which proved very interesting and Gordon seemed to find speed throughout the day.
During the lunch Rocka served up some sausage and beef burger rolls, Barbara had baked two wonderful cakes and sold raffle tickets.
Thanks must go to Barbara and Peter for organising the day and providing many of the prizes, Bob kindly donated a bottle of whisky and Cliff for use of his gazebo, Rocka for supplying his mobile village ( monster mobile home ).
All sailors and partners enjoyed the day and look forward to a future fun day.
Roger using his powerful drone took a video at the start of the day of the one metre racing which he hopes to post. Sailors began leaving the lake at around 5 pm.
David reminded us that the footy open will be held next Saturday (10th ) and asked if anyone could help.
