About the Club, and Membership Information

The Burton and District Model Boat Club was formed in 1979 with an initial membership of five.

In 1988 following a six month trial the then East Staffordshire District Council Leisure and General Purposes Committee granted permission for members to use the North Bay at Branston Water Park.

Members build and sail all types of Model Boats including Steam, Electric, Power Boats, Yachts and Scale Models, and also take part in events all around the Country. Many Club events and shows are undertaken throughout the year and all members are invited to take part in them.

The Water Park is signposted from the A38 Derby - Litchfield Road. The yachting members are often to be found on the water on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday mornings also. Details of our events can also be found on the notice board on the side of the visitors centre in the park (vandals permitting!)..

There is a wealth of help and advice available to all members and should you require any further information any club member will be pleased to help.

The Club year runs from 1st January until 31st December and membership fees are payable for all or part of that period. New members joining between 1st October and 31st December will receive membership until the end of the following year.
