I race IC Multi boats in UK and European competitions. Nearly all the Endurance class (FSR-V) drivers use stick transmitters as the boats require precise sharp turning for the M shape course. However, in both Offshore and Hydro (FSR-H/O) the wheel tx is much more in evidence. Possibly due to the slower response required driving an oval course and the poorer turning of the surface drive boats. In M class (Fast electric), most of the top drivers use wheel tx nowadays. Again a simple triangle course.

For years we sail model boats in Spaarnwoude. The club is regularly engaged in the organization of competitions, international or nationally. The high speeds are achieved with these boats make the hobby spectacular. Different cc engines reach speeds of 60 to 100 km / h. The most popular classes are 3.5cc, 7.5cc, 15cc and 27cc.

The Brentwood Model Yacht & Powerboat Club was founded on the 1st July 1988, with the main interest being model yachts. In July 2013, on our 25th Anniversary, the club changed its name to the Brentwood Model Boat Club. The new name was brought in to reflect that the clubs diverse association with all types & forms of model boating & not just confined to the yachting & power boat racing. At the end of 2014, the club was split into two separate clubs. This was primarily to allow flexibility to each new club to run things independently, as they see fit, to suit our vastly different lake environments. Both clubs have retained a common name & association with each other, but are now known as Brentwood Model Boat Club (for old Scale Section) & Brentwood Model Yacht & Power Boat Club (for old Power & Yacht Sections).
