Hi All

Warminster Model Boat Club have an open day planned for 9th June 2019. All are welcome assuming you have your own TP insurance. We probably have the best lake and facilities for sailing any boats (apart from IC as they are not allowed to be run on the lake) in the South West area. We are also holding Club 500 racing as well as Yacht racing (mainly Dragonforce 65) during the day

That looks a really nice place Andrew. We have a few reservoirs in Mallorca but I have never seen any kind of model boating activity. There are a couple of big ones up in the mountains that would be ideal but the main problem which is quite Spanish but very Mallorquin is that virtually all the here land is privately owned (around 97%) and the owners are extremely territorial believe you me.

Most of the boating here seems to be done in harbours and off sheltered beaches.

If there is one thing I miss about the UK it is the modelling scene of all disciplines.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
