• Short Summary

    Members of the West London Model Power Boat Club race their crafts on a lake.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Dry-land Sailors. (or very nearly so!)".

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in West London?

    Various shots of members of the West London Model Power (Powered?) Boat Club arriving at a boating lake and preparing their model boats for an outing. C/Us of boat engines working. The engine of one ship was made from scrap metal picked up during the First World War while the owner was serving in France.

    Several shots of different ships and boats on the lake. A model tug pulls marker buoys to the centre of the lake, and we see numerous boats involved in races across the water.
