Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

J is for "J" Class

Wednesday and its "J" for "J" Class yachts.
Still on the boating theme you see.
The class yacht's have been around for years on both sides of the pond and are very competitive with the real yacht's.

As in the real thing the competitive spirit is there in the models as well, its only for fun!,don't you believe it.
Our club the Etherow Model boat Club has a good bunch of sailors that have been racing these beautiful graceful yacht's for a number of years now and even have a trophy at the end of the year.
The Graham Harling trophy, for "J" class winner

For them in action see the video!
These shallow hulled yacht's are ideal for our lake as it's quite shallow in parts.
The end of the video is my late wife dancing her Wyeforce Tug in and around the ducks, one of the boats I built for her.

The Velda Teal trophy, for static models.
These trophy's were issued last year after both these sailor's passed away.




What more can I say about these beautiful yacht's 
Just Lovely Jubbley
