Hunter Valley Model Marine Club



The Hunter Valley Model Marine Club is situated in Maitland NSW.  Model boat races in Australia know the venue as Possums Puddle.  The HVMMC is one of the only model boat clubs in Australia with dedicated access to the pond everyday of the year.

It boasts a great member base of people from Sydney to Newcastle and runs petrol, electric and nitro model boat classes.

We recently joined the club and here is a quick video from our first visit!

Model Boat Club of NSW

The Model Boat Club of NSW was originally established in 1965 and currently calls the Sydney International Regatta Centre home. It’s regarded as some of the best water in the world for model boating due to consistently smooth conditions.

Whilst the club thrives on nitro and electric classes, there are still many members running larger petrol boats. Here is a video of a recent club practice day. As you can see from the video, everyone had a great day out on the water. You can find out more about the club and it’s history by visiting their website.

NSW Model Boat Club

Our friends at the Model Boat Club of New South Wales (MBCNSW) are holding their annual Winter Spectacular at the Sydney International Regatta Centre this coming weekend. The event is shaping up to be one of the best of the year with more than fifty competitors entering over two hundred boats into the various classes.

Racers from Victoria, Queensland and South Australia will be fighting it out against the New South Wales locals for the highly prized perpetual trophies and titles.

From all accounts the event will be well run with a dedicated practice day on Thursday 6th August, timed practice sessions of Friday 7th and a full weekend of racing held over Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August 2015.

Visitors and spectators are welcome to come along and see the fastest and best model power boat racing in Australia! Aaron and Daniel from RCBoatBuilder will be there and wearing one of our t-shirts or jumpers, so if you see us please come and say hello.

Sydney Social RC Boat Club

Sydney Social Boaters

Sydney Social Boaters

We love to boat, more importantly we enjoy boating with other like minded enthusiasts. For that reason we created a social club for people in Sydney, Australia who are interesting in getting out and on the water.

The Sydney Social Boat Club have been meeting regularly for about twelve months now.  Most weekends we head out to the Hawkesbury river near Windsor and run our boats for a few hours in the morning.

No politics, no ego’s just a bunch of boaters willing to help each other out and enjoy both gas and electric boats.

If your interested in finding out more, be sure to head over to the Sydney Social Boat Club Facebook page and register to find out when we are all meeting next.
