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.

The winner of the sealed bid for the 2018 race program cover photo was Nigel Stopforth / The Gentleman’s Club, thanks for your financial support.

The annual “Shore Staff” dinner took place this week, this event gives the club a chance to thank our loyal & hard working volunteers, all of those present had an enjoyable time. We invite ALL our dedicated members that give up their free time to ensure our race meetings are a weekly success through the summer, this includes the rescue, race secretarys, timekeepers, scrutineers, caravan staff, OOD’s, new driver trainers & the management committee.

   As the 2018 season is rapidly approaching we are aiming to become a totally “self sufficient” operation that can put on club, national & International meetings without the need to outsource anything or have the need to borrow any equipment, this will reinforce us as the worlds finest powerboat racing club with long term future ambitions.

Shore Staff Dinner

Thanks Wayne !

A massive thanks to Wayne @ Moyse Motors for kindly servicing & preparing our 4x4 launch vehicle ready for the season. Without the support of companies like this we would really struggle.

Tow Truck

Give Wayne a call for all your motoring needs including tyres, MoT’s, remaps & general repairs. We also wish him good luck when he moves into larger premises in the next few weeks
