Marchwood Minnow's Photo Story
This page may take a while to load as it has lots of photos.
It's Tuesday night ... and Marchwood Minnows are getting safely kitted-out ... and launched!
Course-planner Martin plots ... and blows his own three-minute trumpet

The competition from bigger boats can get B-I-G
Serious intent, lots of skills ... and loads of laughs
Southampton Water creates the backdrop for the racers
At the end of an evening's racing, it's back to dry land, to mum ...
and it's been enough to give Martin double-vision
