Site AdminJuly 13, 2024The Club have decided on a new date for Navy Day, its now Sunday 4th August at Setley Pond 9.30 onwards. Please bring your own tables, to exhibit your boats, as club tables are limited and put the date on your calendars. So weather permitting we will see everyone then. [...]
Site AdminJune 21, 2024Scale Section Sail Day at Setley Pond starts at 9.30am on Sunday 23rd June.   The Club  have decided the event will be going ahead, the water level is now manageable and the car park is fully usable, so we are now dependant on the weather. Therefore it will be left to members to decided whether they wish to attend or not.  Hopefully the weather will be kind to us; its June I thought it should be sunny and warm, and not blowing a force 10! Hope to see you there.. Lorna [...]
Site AdminMay 11, 2024The Club have decided to cancel Navy Day due to be held on 19th May due to the high water level in the pond. The photos below show that at present much of the pond-side car park is still under water and the club feel that, even with the nice weather we are having at present, it will not reduce the water sufficiently to be able to hold the event safely and without members having to sit in the water! So with regret Navy Day has been postponed, once a new date has been decided the club will advise members. [...]

Site AdminFebruary 29, 2024Club Member David Reith took these photos at Setley Pond today, the 29th February 2024.  And guess what… more rain is forecast! The pond has now extended over the banks which are very slippery with sudden drops into deep water. These drops are hidden by the water, do not paddle!  Great care is needed in the vicinity of the pond. Click on the images below to enlarge. [...]

(Click on the thumbnails above to enlarge, and also to see photos of the models on Setley Pond and, in some cases, Brian’s notes about the model.) Scale Captain Charles Chambers writes: I recently visited Mrs. Brenda Severn to photograph her late husbands models so that they can be offered for sale. I know Brian was known to a number of the long-standing members of the Club and his models may be familiar to you? All the models are scratch built in wood using the plank on frame method, they are highly detailed with interiors. Brian was an engineer by profession so certain parts of the builds are very intricate. For example the paddle wheels on the two paddle steamers are made of metal and are “feathering”. They all have electric motors installed (some with twin set ups), although the radio control electronics are dated (27MHz/40MHz) and would probably require replacing. Brian spent many years designing and then building a twin cylinder steam plant for the Duchess of Kent paddle steamer, I don’t know if it has been run but it is a wonderful piece of engineering in it’s own right. The steam plant and paddle steamer are to be sold together since this would make a great project and complete the vision that he obviously had. It is fair to say that they are all in need of cleaning, TLC and in some cases restoration as Brian passed away over two years ago and due to his illness the models were untouched for several years prior to then. The models are in Redlynch near Salisbury for viewing and purchase. I have indicated guide prices for each model based on my experience, condition and the model desirability.  Cash is the preferred form of payment.
