Latest News from the Gauteng Model Boat Club
29 March 2015
This Sunday was a quiet and peaceful affair. We had our meeting at our regular club grounds.
We had a good turnout of sailors and a number of races were held with the usual cheating, pushing and we even witnessed some ramming of sailboats as they were going around the mark, but all done gently and accepted in good spirits. The general concensus was that everyone enjoyed themselves.
We had a very close call where the sailors nearly fell into the water as a group! Andreas had a replica speed boat that was rushing up to the concrete embankment and about to be smashed into pieces. The guys leaped to their feet in an attempt to save it from certain destruction...
... then at the last minute he flicked the rudder and shot off in the opposite direction, with everyone muttering and then laughing. It was decided that for punishment for exceeding the wake zone rule near the harbour, Andreas was on rescue duty without the rowboat.
See you all at the next meeting.
