Welcome to WMBC

Scale Boats at Watermead.jpg 1

The Club usually has about 50 to 60 members at all levels of skill.    Some are: scale modellers; some are model yacht race skippers; and several are both.  With three jetties to launch from there is plenty of room on Watermead Lake for many more members: young and old; male and female.  All newcomers and potential young members are especially welcome to join (however we do expect under 16s to be accompanied by an adult).  Members tend to use the lake on Sunday mornings but members are also permitted to use the lake safely at other times during the week.

*** If you want to join us please come along between 10:00 and 12:30 any Sunday morning and introduce yourself!  That’s all it takes!  No letters, no emails, no need for phone calls; just turn up when you are ready to see what it is all about! ***

*** Please note: the owner of the lake does not permit fast and/or noisy model boats to be operated on Watermead Lake by the club at any time  ***
