APPLETON

For my sins I was the original founder of Norwich Model Yacht Club.

For a long while a small group of model sailors met informally at the model boating pond in Norwich. With the closure and subsequent very long delay in restoring it I set about finding a new venue to sail.

My first visit to the developing Whitlingham Country Park and the sight of Little Broad inspired me to form a club and make Whitlingham a permanent base to sail from.

I have had many years of sailing full size dinghies and yachts so had a head start when purchasing a “Fairwind” my first r/c boat.

I also have an ever changing “fleet” of powered scale boats and some pictures of these are also featured.
