Eight skippers gave a good account of themselves at the latest Six Metre open to be held at Hollowell SC. the weather was kind with most of the races being held in glorious sunshine to compliment the beautiful surroundings, just one squally shower came along to briefly spoil the idyll.
The results and my usual verboseness can be found here
Never one to pass up the oppurtunity to put some pictures of some beautifully made sixes on the site I have recently recieved this update from Cliff Grove. The restoration details of Alexander will be of particular interest I think.
"Just thought i would let you know that I have added your excellent web site to my new 6mt page. http://www.grovepondyachts.com/daniels-6mt/
I have also just completed an Alexander 6 Mt restoration that your followers may be interested in. http://www.grovepondyachts.com/alexander-6-mt/
Finally a bit of a self indulgence by my wife and i but we have opened a shop called "The Pond" in Corbridge Northumberland,selling Pond yachts and Dragonflys I think it is probably the only vintage pond yacht shop in the country and been very well received.
Every one who comes in the shop loves the 6 metre even people who know nothing about model yachting."
Basil Carmody is building a model six metre of his own full size Michel Selig, a yacht he has restored himself. Basil has very kindly agreed to update us on his radio Six Metre Michel Selig II build as the work progresses, you can find his very interesting introduction article here.
