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.

That’s it for now!!!! It’s going to be a busy few months but our dedication & commitment to our drivers, members & rescue crews is what makes us the UK’s successful club

We held the first OSY 400 European Championship working group meeting on Monday the 22nd of January. This was an extremely well attended event with management, officials, scrutineers, rescue, competitors, pit crew, photographers & general members which goes to show the backup and dedication we have for this race meeting, a big thanks to all of you that came along.


Many subjects & ideas were discussed with actions already being taken on several of them, we highlighted the importance of making this a smooth successful event & the need to raise enough revenue & sponsorship. We have to date received some very generous donations that have been added to the pot, if anyone knows of a sponsor or supporter that wishes to donate please let us know, this can be publicised or kept confidential, details of how to forward funds will be available shortly on this page and also on a dedicated EC race event tab on the club website.


The date of the next meeting is Monday the 19th of February @ 1900hrs - King Alfred P/House.
