Stevenage Club Crew: Thanks go to all of the several Stevenage Model Boat club crew who made this event run through some pretty crap conditions. The rescue boat was nearly swamped at one time with heavy rain (and the effects of a fountain rescue!!!!) Those present will know what I mean! Rescue Boat, Engine and facilities all greatly appreciated. In addition, a local member took some great photos, to appear on here later. Thanks!!

Sun 03rd May

2015

The racing had to finish a bit sooner than we all had anticipated during the mid afternoon heats due to a violent electrical storm which could have been risky with vertical areals pointing into the sky. Most members were already soaked to  the skin after the wet am racing, but a massive clap of thunder saw most members dive for cover and the torrential rain storm which entailed, meant the usual after race presentation could not happen.

 

The day did however see some great racing and tested drivers skill to the limit. One or two suffered a few mishaps, and photos / video footage will tell the tale more than I need to do.

The results show how tight the racing was especially in the smaller engine classes!
