Where are we     


The Committee of GRMBC would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this new club Season.

This year we are looking forward to another excellent season of sailing. The club hosts a range of annual events during May to August. Information about these events will be posted on the club notice board and website: www.glasgowrichmondmbc.co.uk.

Membership participation is key to ensuring the success of these events, so we would like to encourage you to get involved and support the work of GRMBC in any way you can.

In return, GRMBC aims to provide you with an opportunity to enjoy a variety of model boating activities. A wide range of interests are catered for within the club i.e. warships, tugs, fishing boats, yachts etc. There is also a strong engineering section which focuses on live steam models.

The club also offers the following excellent facilities:
  • a large all year round sailing pond.
  • a self service cafe-kitchen – providing hot and cold drinks, crisps and biscuits.
  • workshop space - with access to a range of hand tools and machinery.
  • two large open fires - for those cold winter days sailing.
  • a library of model-boating books and magazines.
  • a ‘Sales and Wants’ notice board.
  • toilet and hand-washing facilities on site.
  • easy access for disabled persons, flat tarmac.
  • parking at the pond side.
  • free use of "lifting handles" for launching/retrieving" your model.

In addition to the normal sailing activities, the club is always looking for new opportunities to reflect the variety of interests within the club so if you would like to start a monthly meet please speak to a member of the Committee.
