Members;  Please see News page for details of our end of season meal on Sat 27th November 2021 – we do hope you will be able to attend – Regards, The Committee

We at the Brightlingsea Model Boat Club offer a great friendly atmosphere with members from all walks of life, some working and others retired with backgrounds from Engineering, Army, Electronics, Ambulance Service and Boat Makers, all of whom have varying levels of experience in sailing.

We sail on a Wednesday and Sunday 52 weeks of the year; 7.30am with weekly races e.g. barge races, one metre and super yacht (any size) races, plus electric boat competitions, pursuit races as well as general sailing around the pond. The Club House is normally open on Club days until atleast 11.30.  This is dependant on the number of members on the day, and the weather.  There are times, especially on a Sunday that this is extended. 

We cater for all sorts of model boats except for IC and really fast electric craft (in consideration of the wildlife on and around the lake)


New members are always welcome. (Membership runs from May to April), Membership is subject to approval by Committee. 

Come along and meet us at our clubhouse, or email Keith Hawes; Club Secretary Email; hawesk091@gmail.com
