About the Club


The Gorleston Model Boat Club sail at the Gorleston model boat pond (postcode NR31 6BT) located right on the beach.  The pond is just over half a metre deep surrounded by a raised wall.  This makes launching easy, even for the bigger boats.  The open surroundings mean that there is almost always a cooling breeze which is much appreciated during the hot summer months.  Yachts can also enjoy the free power supply (wind) across the whole pond.

We consider the Winter to be the building season, with many of our members actively involved in building new models ready to sail during the Summer months,  We spend many happy hours in sheds, garages and workshops, creating stunning models of every conceivable type of craft which we then display and sail at numerous events during the summer season, much to the enjoyment of ourselves, fellow modellers and the public at large.

We are a dedicated group of enthusiasts interested in all forms of this hobby, yachts, fast electrics, nitro, scale and steam boats. In fact every type of boat or ship and, of course, the modellers who make them, are welcome to join us.

We also have a number of members who own and operate various types of model vehicles as the wide promenade is ideal for these.
