We normally meet on Friday mornings at the lake on the “Care Ashore” Seamen’s Retirement Home on the Springbok Estate. We actually have use of the lake, bar facilities (when open) and toilets 7 days a week. Free parking is close by. Normally we sail our models for about 3 hours before adjourning to the bar for refreshment.
The club is open to new members where the cost is only £30 per annum. Members are very friendly and will offer every assistance to those starting out or who simply wish to try out a boat. Model yacht racing for IOM, DF65, DF95’s and other classes are also arranged periodically.
Anyone interested in joining can simply come along and introduce themselves any Friday morning. If the pond appears deserted, due to heavy rain for example, you will probably find a small group of us in a corner of the bar or later on, if the sun is shining, on the terrace outside.
Springbok is a lovely location and worth attending for a tranquil morning if for no other reason.
