Thought you might like to see some of our"Squadron" as they now called. Billy N's (left) mine (yellow) & finally "McPhails" the one with the dodgy moustache & sloping mast. As usual, the wind disappears when the nips go in!!

If there was more wind we could sail round the moving white markers, some people call them swans, think the public get a bit confused sometimes as they throw bread at our nips as we sail by.

Are there any nips at your club yet?

A part of the Richmond "Squadron"



A group of 5, ready to sail at Richmond, including Kevin,our Junior member, nice one Kevin.

The captions read "Who's that without a Nip" "Dun'o I'm concentrating" "Wish I could get a shot"

The expression on Jim's face (right) says it all ,serves him right for not having a Nip

"No Nip = sad face"

There a was Nip race at Richmonds open day, May 2009, didn't quite make the 10 Nips this time, we were visited by the infamous Kieth from Ayr, who thoroughly enjoyed himself, even if he didn't win Rolling Eyes

Allan Lindsay, Nip 101, won both the races by a large margin followed each time by Patriotic Nip & Red Boat, Gold Label crashed out before the start with radio problems Shocked (I'll give you more competition next time Allan)
Bob (blue sail) has since replaced his sail with a "proper one" & is going much faster now, "Willie" has decided to repaint his camouflage green Nip since he couldn't see it!!!!

All in, the next race should be even more competitive (sorry, should have said more fun.)

Talking of which, there will be a Nip race at the Fed. day at Largs this year.


No pictures........this time a video

Glasnost at Richmond Park

East meets West at Richmond Park, when Alan Pollock payed us a visit on Nip Sunday (the 3rd Sunday of the month)
Unfortunately, most of the guy's had gone to Greenock to support their open day or had other commitments.



Allan Lindsay came with 101, the wind was "poor" to non-existent but as Alan P. said "it's the same for all of us"



A sudden gust of wind, could take you from 1st to 3rd place Rolling Eyes in the end we settled on a draw.

The numbers may have been small, but from small acorns ........ the main thing was we all enjoyed ourselves & that is the main object of the game.

Alan P. is off home to make a new sail. Laughing

Perhaps next time Naval Nip now renamed "HMS WarsNip" will be ready, hope the "Gun" is non-operational Brian, (tried to get Brian to use a camouflage sail but he was on to me. Shocked

Big Brian is almost finished HMS WarsNip

Brian usually builds big pointy grey things Sad but decided on a change, a pointy grey thing with a sail Very Happy saves buying a new tin of paint I expect.

He asked my advice, on what weapon system was appropriate for this class Shocked

Expect if he can't win a race he will blow you out the water. Cool

I think, the "Guns the One"

It's been a long time in the waiting, but Willie H. has finally got his Nip in the water Very Happy

His exact words were & I quote, "I don't care where I come in, in the Nip race, as long as I beat, Willie G"

All I can say, is, Willie , with friends like that...... I think you know the rest. Rolling Eyes

Welcome aboard Willie.

A festive conundrum from Malcolm Craik, who's not built his Nip yet! Sad


When is a Nip not a Nip...............................



................when it's a dram.

This is a secret so don't tell anyone Rolling Eyes

Willie H has just admitted the Nip he made (with Homer on the sail) is built upside down Shocked the transom slopes the wrong way, he said "I wondered how I had to chop off as much from the bow to get it to fit" Shocked

It's OK Willie, no-one reads the colum anyway. Laughing

I think, he is trying to make his Nip smaller & lighter Idea by taking rule 1 in the newly formed Fed Regs for Nips to the max.

Quote:
The hull length & bulb depth should be built up to a max of the size laid down in the MMI plan (70cm including bumper), any size under is acceptable.


You can't argue with that, his Nip is definitely under
Laughing

As Homer would say DOH!!!
Who spotted it first? The wrong slope on the transom can clearly be seen on the photo posted by Dont be Vague on 4th Dec!!
No I didn't spot it either Shocked

It was someone at K'wood.

I was distracted by Homer as well, Doh

Seems he's going to make another one, as they say, watch this space.
