Sad to say, I'm not actually a member of the Centurion Model Boat Club, despite having lived here for a number of years. But I'm sure the guys at the club would love having your model sailing there. Perhaps one day I'll have the time to venture to Emmarentia Dam to see the Spioenkop and all the other boats of the GMBC in action. Best regards, Glyn
From April to October, weather permitting, you will find members enjoying scale boat and sailing sessions from 18:00 until sunset generally on Tuesday,Thursday and Sunday evenings weather permitting., (Parking is easy in the adjacent car park and free after 18:00). 24 Hr Parking is free on both sides of the adjacent road "Inner Promenade" Come along and have a chat and maybe have a go yourself. Membership for 2017 remains at £10 per annum and includes insurance ! The yachting members sail mainly Dragon-force, RC Lasers and Victoria Yachts also hosting National events attracting large turn outs to the scenic location. More recently the club have use of the newly re-furbished park building positioned next to the lake complete with high quality kitchen and other facilities. The building is already used to support sailing open events and regular opening times are now a real possibility with the support of Fylde Borough Council. The active scale model section attends shows often by invitation across the North West supporting charity fund raising events for the Life Boat service and others.
Hi there, Sorry but Cumbria has no Canals, Lancashire has some 40 miles away. Cumbria has some lakes some covering 5 acres or more all with overhanging trees, poor access, exposed to high winds and rain, and a nice 4-7 mile walk to get to the other side. The Windermere club was about 40miles from me but has no water at present and has not had any for a number of years. I may be fussy, but if something goes wrong (which it often does) I need to get my boat back without too much trouble. It is surprising but even small public ponds/paddling pools have been closed by local councils in-case they get sued. So I travel a round trip of 80 miles to sail at Darlington Model Boat club, a great bunch of lads they have a 80m square pond with access all round, a rescue boat, a club house, toilet and kitchen. I also go to Norwich, Eaton Park when I visit my Dad a fantastic old Victorian walled pond about 30m by 120m. Some pics of Eton Park Thanks Roy
Gerry, following our meeting last Monday, I realise I don't have your phone number. Could you get in touch with me about running on the Well Creek. Did you mention it to your chums at Kingfishers on the Wednesday. Cheers, Martin

So, the programming is done with the TX.? Ah, right. I didn't understand a word of the instructions, though. I don't want want backuds or brakes. It's an outboard racer. Don't do backuds. And my other boats, even if they had a brushless wouldn't do backuds either. All speedboats. I don't have a club to go to, so no fiddly steering competitions. Guy I met last Monday about setting up a local group has already disappeared. How like model boaters. Martin
The Winnipeg Model Boat Club was formed in 1994 by a group of enthusiasts. We build model boats of various scales and subjects, both operational and static. While not specifically a radio control club, many of our members enjoy outfitting their boats for radio control operation. We are a noncompetitive club. On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings throughout the spring, summer and autumn, our members can be found sailing their boats at the Riley Family Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park. In winter, we meet monthly and talk about all things model boat-related as well as discuss current projects and plans. Our annual regatta is held in May at the Riley Family Duck Pond. We also take part in a number of public displays throughout the year at HMCS Chippawa, the Red River Exhibition and the Mega Train Show. For more information about the club or how to become a member, please contact us. We also proudly support: Naval Museum of Manitoba HMCS Chippawa 1 Navy Way, Winnipeg, MB Canada
My answer would always be if the engine starts easily, use it and the hell with jobswuffs who would tell you no. Just don't ask. Go when nobody else is around. If its a natural lake it maybe doesn't belong to anyone, so go ahead. If the owner can prove it can't be used, by proving he IS the owner, then desist and find another body of water. There are quite a few in Wales after all. Alas, if you join a local club they will be bound to say no IC engines. They nearly all tend to now, whether they have the right to or not. I'd say leave them alone and enjoy yourself on a river or natural lake. Only if you just cannot find anywhere to run IC should you give in to electric. Good luck. Martin The Anarchists Boat Club.
