Welcome to the Mid Thames Model Boat Club

What's New!


  • MEMBERS ACCESS  TO Hi5 - Subject to your own interpretation of the Covid19 restrictions, access is available to play boats any day at any time until the end of the year. But please remember it is important to have someone with you who can raise the alarm in the event of an emergency, more info can be found by clicking here >

The Mid Thames Model Boat Club was founded in 1980 and has since developed into one of the largest clubs in the South of England. It is a friendly Club that encourages members to build and enjoy all sorts of model boats. We have active sections for Fast Electric, Scale models, Tug Towing and Yachting (model yacht racing). 

Our Club activities take place at the Hi5 Activity Centre, Reading Lake, Pingewood near Reading. If you are interested in joining us give us a call or turn up at one of our club events. No experience is required and if you wish you can have a go with a boat and see how you like it! You will find contact details and directions to Hi5 in the main menu above.

The Mid Thames Model Boat Club is committed to promoting the highest standard of Health and Safety for its members and fellow users of Hi5.

Please see the Health & Safety section under the More. . . menu above.
