Have your say

A MODEL boat competition saw students skipper miniature yachts across the water in Gosport.

Held at Walpole Lake, the home of the Gosport Model Yacht and Boat Club, the event saw 40 people take part.

The university students, from Southampton Solent University, had spent around 100 hours designing and building the vessels.

They tested them in the race, taking them upwind and downwind to pass part of their course.

All of the students are studying either yacht and powercraft design or yacht production and surveying.

Brainy Alice Courage won the race and said: ‘I’m so happy to have won and especially proud to be the first woman to win the model yacht race.’
