Eastleigh and District Model Boat Club is the premier model boat club in our area. It comprises two divisions, encompassing scale model boating and radio control yacht racing. The Club has been in existence since 1984. For a brief history CLICK HERE
Sail Division: Radio Sailing Eastleigh is the radio yacht racing division of the Eastleigh And District Model Boat Club(EDMBC). It has its sailing home at the beautiful Lakeside Country Park, with its lakes, wild life and famous model railway. Our sailing location is clearly shown in this aerial photograph,
and on Google Map, not far from M27 Junction 5 and Southampton Parkway Rail Station, and just beyond the Eastleigh Model Railway. We always welcome visitors and new members of all levels of experience. See contact details elsewhere on this site.
Scale Division: The Scale Division of the Club is to be found at Highbridge Farm – Google Map – just to the north of Eastleigh, with its own boating pond and model boating and social facilities. More information may be found in the Scale Division page of this site. The Scale Division website is currently in construction. GO TO SCALE DIVISION WEBSITE
We are affiliated to the Model Yachting Association (MYA), which is itself affiliated to the RYA and the International Radio Sailing Association, the IRSA. We race International One Metre yachts and Radio Marbleheads both of which have international status. We also race the Dragon Force 65, an off the shelf, single design class, which is gaining widespread popularity. Check the menu if you want to know more details of the racing Programme.
We abide by the RYA Racing Charter which encourages fairness and sportsmanship within the yacht racing community.
