We are looking forward to our annual club trip on Saturday 13th July 2019.

This year is a day out in the Lake District, which includes a ride on a steam train from Haverthwaite to Lakeside, followed by a journey on a lakeland steamer to Bowness, entry to Windermere Boat Museum and lunch.

Trip price is inclusive of return coach from club house and all activities.


Our annual presentation evening was held on Saturday 13th April 2019 at Peasehill House, Rawdon.

Congratulations to our winners Richard Smalley, Gavin Druce, Peter Barber, Martin Hallums and George Dines.


In April 2019 many of our members participated in a special family friendly exhibition called Modelmania at Bradford Industrial Museum exploring modelling and why models are created.

The exhibition was greatly received by the public and the club gained some new members.



Summer 2018 saw the Annual club trip. This year was a 3 hour river cruise on the Teeside Princess with lunch on board. It was a great turnout and everyone who attended had a good time.


Members came together in strength to put on a display at Otley Show where great interest was shown as well as skippers attending having a great day out.
