Re: Coniston Water Byelaws "2019"

Now called Coniston Water Byelaws 2020, the final drafting and second stage consultation has resulted in a final opportunity for comments. Should nothing major in these words have to be altered, the Byelaws will be probably be signed in late December (on behalf of the LDNPA) and come into operation ...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

First, there was the sudden addition of five new trustees in 2018, at least three of whom had direct or familial links to the short-lived Bluebird Heritage company dissolved after just eighteen months in January 2019. Some details: The Coniston Bluebird Heritage Limited was established by key membe...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Referring back to Malcolm and Richie’s posts on 30th July, I don’ think the future running of Bluebird should be limited to Coniston And you can bet that any of the above listed stretches of water in Scotland, Australia, America and France would be falling over themselves to welcome her back to see...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Many people want to see K7 run on Coniston Water. I admit that would be cool but speaking only for myself here and not necessarily on behalf of other team members, it doesn't bother me one way or the other. Scotland is just as good. It's running the machine and working with the team that does it fo...

Coniston Water Byelaws "2019"

Keeping up to date with the Byelaws for the 'home water' of K7. The LDNPA have apparently submitted the proposed Coniston Water 2019 Byelaws to the Secretary of State for approval and comments. There is no indication (that I can find) as to when there may be a response from that person. There will b...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

K777 was an entrant in the organised Speed Records Week event, piloted by Jim Noone, to attempt jet powered speed records in a specific weight class. On the first visit the team based themselves at Pier Cottage. On both outings there were problems with getting the craft on the plane. Bluebird K7 no ...

It takes how long to assemble a blue boat?

You can now try to 'assemble' Bluebird K7, with Stew at the controls, in under 15 minutes. :roll:

On facebook go to the Speed Record Club site and find Easter Sunday's jigsaw puzzle. The picture is from Loch Fad 2018.

Re: BBP Diary

Good to read the diary pages in 2020. My first visit to the Isle of Bute was on the 8th January 2018, with a follow up in June. Today's diary piece has filled in all of the missing pieces of the transport journey from North Shields of K7. These were missing because at the start of August I was alrea...

Christmas 2019

Merry Christmas to the Team and the Bute Crew along with others who have been part of this project. [If you haven't looked at the Team 'tag' lately do so] from one member of 'Operations'. This is the first year that I have failed to get to the workshop for my usual one day! Have a good time with fam...

Re: Planning Time before the Proving Trial?

As the days rush towards the end of the year, I for one had hoped that there would be some positive news from Cumbria. Nothing has been published on the final version of the "updated and future proofed" Bye-Laws, which will need Secretary of State sign-off. It seems that the revisions to the Conisto...
