Come On And Get Racing !

Attention new or returning drivers..... the L&OBMBC is in a position to offer you a unique opportunity. We have a selection of equipment that needs to be raced & seen on the water, you get a licence (1/2 price for newcomers & returning drivers who haven't raced for 5 years) & we give you the boat. In return we expect to see the boat raced as much as possible at club & national events. There's a choice of GT-15, GT-30 & OSY.  Basic terms & conditions apply.

2017 LOBMBC Championship

Final Placings

LOBMBC's  Thomas Mantripp has exceeded expectations this year by becoming the RYA British GT30 champion at the first time of asking. Thomas made the switch from the junior GT15 class this season & now competes against adults of all ages, he said "To become the British Champion is a dream come true, both myself & my Dad have worked extremely hard to make this happen with lots of testing & practice, our preparation has enabled me to succeed". This tops off an incredible year of success for Thomas who has taken the UK Masters championship, the British Sprint title as well as a very credible bronze medal in the European Championship. All the teams attention is now on the annual powerboat records week held on Coniston Water in November where Thomas will be attempting the outright World speed record for the GT30 class, Thomas had this to say "We will be doing our best to achieve the world record, I am confident it is possible & just hope the weather & water conditions are kind as this has a major effect on the speed run".


Also Wayne Moyse will attempt to establish a national record in OSY.400.
