The Club was founded in 2000 and is a small, friendly Model Boat Club and has over 30 members with a wide range of interests, abilities and skills. We build, convert, buy and sail radio controlled model boats of every description including sailing yachts, tugs, launches, warships, lifeboats, submarines and many more.
The club exists to promote the building and sailing of radio controlled model boats of every description by all ages and genders. Help and guidance is always available to members that require it.
New members can be assured of a warm welcome, whether novices or highly skilled in model making.
