The York Model Boat Club Spring Regatta recently took place in the idyllic setting at Laytham.

It was held on a blue sky day with a perfect breeze filling the sails of the many varied yachts, along with the tugs or cargo ships that came out to join them.

A spokesman said: “In and around the marquee there were some real gems, some with an in-depth history about the model.

“Some were up to 6ft tall and 6ft long.”

The next regatta will be held on Sunday 20 May between 10am and 4pm. Visit www.yorkmodelboatclub.co.uk for more details.
