Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

It is numbers time again folks. 100 days have passed since Bluebird K7 went on to the surface of Loch Fad on the Isle of Bute for crew training. Yes, one hundred days! I am not sure which Isle has "limited access" from the last posting - is that the British Isles post Brexit or the area known as th...

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

Why would it get up my nose? I don't necessarily think driving a WWSR boat is difficult, but, knowing how to react to a dangerous situation or a little experience of what may happen must surely be useful.
