Club Cruise To Bristol in September 2018

The last Cruise in Company of the 2018 season was to Bristol at the end of September, which  coincided with the Bristol Heritage Festival. Only two boats (Seawitch & & Splatz) made the trip but it was a good one.

NUSC Regatta 1970

Recently while clearing the filing cabinets in the office I came across a roll of Cine film with the label  NUSC’s Regatta (1st) 1970. The film has degraded somewhat but I managed to get it transferred onto DVD.  I have no idea the origin of this Cine film or how long the film has been at the bottom of the filing cabinet, or who owns and created it  but felt that such an important part of our clubs past should not just stay gathering dust, so i have put the film (approx 5 minutes) on to the website below.

The first few minutes of the film have a horrible buzzing sound which goes around the 2’50 mark.  i would suggest muting it.  I will attempt in the future to over lay a sound track to get rid of the noise.

 

This film shows racing around our home waters of the Usk.

If anyone has any information about this film we would be interested to hear in the comments

Callao has sailed

For those who have been eagerly following the progress of Chris and Peter Roberts with their rebuilding of Callao.  you will be happy to know that their hard work has finally paid off and the boat has now gone in the water, and sailed.

They did look a remarkable sight as they weaved up and down the Usk outside the club.
