Big Mac 2019 - Windermere July 24th to 31st

This is the opening post on the Big Mac 2019 event. I will post again in much more detail at the end of next week after I have met with the manager of Windermere Marina Village and the wardens at Ferry Nab marina, next week.

An expression of interest on this forum would be helpful for numbers.

So far, apart from myself and Nicola, I think Roly and Ros, Rick and Glenys, Rod and Jill, Mick and Maureen, David K, John P, are all likely to attend.

Save the date if you can, let us know if you are interested and I will publish full details next week.

Spring is in the air.

It’s too early to be certain, but I am hopeful that I will be there with Logan‘s Run.

Hi Quentin,

Hi Quentin,

I will attend, Peter C is hoping to have Helena Rose there and I was hoping to crew for him and David C if he makes it, BUT I have another "Cunning Plan" and that is, if I can persuade any of my family to come up and stay in Windermere village for the week I would tow Ashanti up, so the Grandchildren could get some sailing. At the moment I am 'floating' the idea and will keep you posted.

It was nice to catch up last weekend, after you went back to your digs Roly and I had a nightcap or three and put the world to rights !!

Looking forward to the season ahead,

Best Regards,

John

PS

As I said at the AGM I will organise some cruising in the Medway/Swale during the summer and hope to get a few of the local Mac's to join in, of course anyone from farther afield will be welcome.

Also, I did offer to get in touch with the member who has the mould for the dagger board and offer to box it up, and store it in one of my warehouses so that it can be sent by carrier to anyone who would like to use it. If its OK with the committee I will do this.

It also occurs to me that the new member I think it was Derek said he had a mould for a rudder, which I think was a C class, I could do the same for that.

It was Keith talking about a rudder mould, it's for a 19. It was made by John Anstice-Brown.

Hi, I am storing the rudder

Hi, I am storing the rudder mould for the 19. My original idea was to use it to make river rudders for our 26M but at the AGM it was made clear that it would be too short. However, Roly nipped out to his car and brought in one stored in his car which he is prototyping from a a broken 26 rudder cut to length with the lower bit glassed to the top to make it double the surface area. Brilliant!

If anyone wants to use the 19 mould just let me know.

John,

John,

Please keep me in the loop regarding any Medway plans. I am impatient to get the boat in the water.

Hi David,

Hi David,

This great weather makes us all feel that summer is just around the corner, but remember the Beast from the East last year !!

I'll certainly keep everyone informed re the Medway, like you I can't wait 'cos I have a new main being made and hopefully I will be working on the steering also, but I'm still suffering from a dodgy back at the moment which has stopped me doing any work this week.

Look forward to meeting up soon,

Regards,

John

Hi Quentin

Hi Quentin

Miriam and I (in Mist, M26) would like to join you for the Windermeer trip. I wonder how many Macs Windermere can cope with?
