Dear BOTTLE boat enthusiasts,
The Championship was held on 11 August, whilst I was on holiday in Waldringfield and unfortunately as I had no computer there this report is rather delayed. I would like to thank Commodore Ian Videlo who borrowed my SD card and some of the photographs were on the Waldringfield Sailing Club Facebook page the day after the event. I would also like to thank Adrian Price who not only did the grand job as rescue boat in his inflatable kayak, but put a camera on the bow and produced a short film, which gives a very good flavour of the action on the water. The link to this is The report is already on the Yachts and Yachting ‘clubs and classes’ website under ‘model yachts’ and will appear in the Model Boats magazine in due course.
The next event for BOTTLE boats is the BRASS MONKEY event at Guildford Model Yacht Club on Saturday 14th December and I look forward to seeing you there.
Cheers, Roger
