Welcome to my page on rocketry. I was introduced to the world of rocketry at the IRW (International Rocketry Week) which is held each August near Largs on the west coast of Scotland. I got dragged along to it by my ex-boyfriend.

My first rocket was LBT, named after my first car which was the same colour. This was a scratch built rocket made in true Blue Peter style from bits that were lying around my house. I then didn't make another rocket till just before the 2000 IRW event when I decided I better have a little more to fly this time since I was going to the event for longer. This lead me to build Qoubba and to buy some kits. Kits are easy to put together and quick but I don't get as much fun from following someone elses design, so most of my rockets will be scratch built or modified kits.
