Ernie Hunting

The Club has been notified of Ernie Hunting's funeral which will take place at St Marks Church, Oulton Broad at 1.45 on February 5th.

    Ernie was  a lifelong LOBMBC member before becoming a timekeeper in the days before computer timing. There is a Pathe News film from 1963 which shows him  operating the starting clock by hand.

To show our commitment of introducing new drivers we are offering a fantastic opportunity for two NEW competitors to join the sports boat class.


The lucky ones will receive a free 2019 BPBA licence, L&OBMBC club membership, dunk test (if needed) and a medical.


Anyone that’s interested please contact our sports boat representative Ray Read - mail@rayread.co.uk
