South Manchester Model Boat Club - Posted: 9 months ago by ChrisPSR
We were established in 1980 as the Platt Fields Model Boat Club with two objectives:
To promote the construction and sailing of model boats
To organise, hold and attend model boat competitions
In 1998 we decided to change the name of the Club to the South Manchester Model Boat Club so as to better reflect our location and the area of population we serve.
The Club has the exclusive use of the Platt Fields Park boating lake and sails there every Sunday morning from 9.30 am until approx. 1.00 pm. Visitors are always welcome, but why not become a member. Sailing is permitted at other times on this water provided permission is first obtained from the Park Managers office, and a current Club membership card is produced.
We have established a reputation for being a relaxed and friendly Club and currently our membership stands at 18. Although a small club, we have a very large a varied selection of models, with no specialisation or favour given to any particular branch of our hobby (scale, warship, sail, fun, fast electric, etc.) although there is a strong IOM., section and other racing interests.
Our well equipped Club also has exclusive use of a large club room at the lakeside with kitchen facilities where we hold our club meetings on the first Sunday of each month at the end of the scheduled sailing period, along with IOM., race practise on most Tuesday afternoons.

Great model roady!

I remember the Alice Upjohn when she was in service at Dungeness. I still am friends with some of the crew, Dungeness is now home to a Shannon..
