Dolphin six's twelves and old timers.

The yachts on Dundee's Swannie pond have been attracting a lot of interest lately, possibly due to their majestic movements? or more than likely  due to the utter carnage of big yachts squeezed
into a small pond!!

Six metre racing returns to "swannie" Pond, Dundee.

Five new Dolphins will be taking part in Dundee Model Boat Clubs first 6 Metre race in years. On Sunday the 13th of August 2017 Dundee Model Boat Club will resume 6 Metre racing after many years.
This will be a monthly event and it is hoped that 6 metre racing will be as popular as it was back in the day.
below shows Dundee Model boat Club members before a big race  taken back pre second world war 2.
The big sixes are well and truly back on "Swannie pond".

 Back in the hay-day of 6M racing on Swannie Pond, Dundee. No radio control then, just point an run!.

One new Dolphin six metre  in white and a vintage Bob Underwood Dolphin in blue limbering up on the "Swannie" pond today. Both Radio Control but still depending on the elusive "Swannie" wind for power.
