The majority of Scale boats in our club are electric powered models. There are a few steam-powered boats (but you must have a valid Boiler Test Certificate and your own PL Insurance). They come in all shapes and sizes, with a large variety of models, from working tugs to Police boats, Costal cruisers to Fishing boats.
Quite a few members with scale boats in our club can be seen “free sailing” their models - especially when the weather is nice!
On Wednesday evenings during the summer months we run a series of “fun” competitions to test the members skill at operating their model boat on the water. This series is for the “Scale Challenge Trophy” and consists of a number of different events. Entries will score points at each meeting depending how high they were placed.
