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.

After our management meeting this week our committee have unanimously decided that due to a lack of pre-entries and escalating cost of ambulances and associated costs the 2018 British National Championship round scheduled for May the 6th & 7th will be unfortunately cancelled. This was a choice that wasn’t taken lightly but one based upon a business option and that of our members and paying spectators.

    The off spin is we will run a unique 1st for the club in the way of a UK Interclub Challenge, this will be open to ALL classes and competitors from the UK’s circuit racing clubs. The format will be practice & jetty starts of 3 heats for everyone on Sunday and rolling start ‘standard’ style 3 heats club Racing on Monday. Entry will be (including the Broads Authority tax) £70 for seniors & £20 for juniors, this will cover both days. The pits will be open from Saturday & everyone is welcome to spend the entire weekend here by supporting our Thursday club event on the 3rd.

    Let’s hope for improving numbers in 2019 for the re-introduction of National Racing at our club.

    We are looking at options for entertainment and subsidised hotels/restaurants etc for the whole weekend, details to follow.

    We also had a very positive well attended pre-season drivers forum this evening to pave the way for our up coming season.

Stickers rescue 2018

Well done and thanks to all of our dedicated rescue crew that completed the pre-season ‘wet driver’ training last night. This is an opportunity to check the operation of our rescue boats after their winter service and conduct some new member water based training. Plenty of smiling faces and all in all a great evening.

    Thanks to Mike Wray, Andy Collison and Malc Curtis for your efforts as well as all those that attended.
