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.

A message from Lorraine Stopforth & family......


Many thanks to all those who attended the celebration of Gordon Chenery's life & for all the kind words.

    As a former racer, long time club member and where he spent many happy hours both on and off the water Gordon's family feel it would be fitting that any donations, if desired in his memory, go to the L&OBMBC.

    Donations can be made payable to LOBMBC and/or passed to Joy Shulver (Members Rep) or Peter Mantripp (Commodore).


Many Thanks

Lorraine Stopforth & Family
