  • Two new articles have been added to the Useful Information Page - "Choosing a Wacky Racer" and "Self Righting for Fast Electric Boats"

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 in the beautiful setting of Beale Park, by the River Thames, near Pangbourne and 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 Beale Park 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 Beale Park.

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

Please note that we are unable to accommodate I/C powered craft at Beale Park.
