Be careful what you wish for!

OLDIES DAY 24 AUG 2019

Posted by Terry Smith on September 17, 2019 at 9:50 PM Comments comments (0)

The Oldies Day was well attended with an especially good roll-up from Mawson Lakes Model Yacht Club. There was no formal racing as such, just a general sail around,goggle at each others' boats and jibbering.
