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.

Y is for Yacht's

What else could it be for "Y" than Yacht's in my Boat themed blog's
Starting at the smallest there is the Micro Magic from Graupner a German company.

Leading or trailing?

Then there is the really big ones such as this one.
 Won Best yacht at Bury, Pocatannia scratch built by my Mate Bob

Here he is with his trophy, he called this picture 
"Pleased as Punch with two Judy's", Velda and Joyce his wife

Then its the really big ones
"A" Class, carbon fibre hull
Talking big money now as well.

Then how about this scratch built schooner.


This one is cheap enough to build though!!

So there you have it, a run down of most of the yacht's sailed in our club,
