COVID 19 SAILING (17th May 2021)

As of 17th May 2021 there has been a further change to Government Regulations. This means that Luton & District Model Boat Club can now sail outside as a group with a maximum of 30 people. If you wish to sail then you will still need to book a slot with the SECRETARY as we are continuing to operate 'Track and Trace'. At all future sailings, until at least July, we are required to wear a mask in groups of seven or more where a 2 meter distance cannot be maintained. While this should not affect us too much, it would be helpful if you could wear a mask at least in the table area, and spread out down the seating area to try and get 2 meters apart. The Club will put out tables as usual and we can now share a half table if necessary. Many thanks for your co-operation.

PLEASE NOTE!!! DUE TO CURRENT LEGISLATION, ALL MEETINGS AT BUSHMEAD HUB ARE CANCELLED FOR THE FORESEABLE FUTURE.

Welcome

The Club was originally formed as a scale model boat club. We now, however, cater for modelling of all types, not just for boats. There is a high level of interest in scale and non scale sail. We have an active steam group as well as a small nucleus of ’fast electric’ members.

The Club meets for sailing every Sunday morning from about 10am on the lake in Wardown Park, Luton, Bedfordshire. The lake facility is brought to us by the kind offices of Luton Borough Council who take an interest in our activities and are always keen to assist our endeavours in every way possible.

The Club holds regular evening meetings on the second Monday of every month. The venue for these meetings is the Bushmead Community Hub. The Community Hub is off Hancock Drive on the Bushmead Estate, Luton, just off the A6 out of Luton in the direction of Bedford. Postcode is LU2 7SF. Meetings start at 7:30pm prompt until 9:45pm.

The Club has strong ties with other model boat clubs throughout the region and is an active participant in all the local and national modelling shows.
