About us

how do I get started

Race Days - All Welcome

We are a Club that caters for pretty much all aspects of radio control power boat racing, whether it is big, small or in between. There are a lot of experienced modellers who are more than happy to help you out with your boat. Come on down and have a look before deciding on a hull and power source and you can take a look at what's available and see what would suit your RC model boat requirements. 

 

The best thing to do is to talk to one of our contacts which are located on this website or come down to our pond on race day and see our boats running and talk to the Members about what type of Class boats they are running and to make sure your boat is compatible with our boat Classes. 

More Info Inside......

 

Race Days are every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. Racing starts at 9.30am. 
Please feel free to visit us and make yourself known to our Club Captain. We cater for all levels, and you are most welcome to come down and talk to us.
We are a group of radio control modelboat enthusiasts and our home pond is located at Wattle Farm Reserve, Wattle Downs, Auckland.

Ready to Run Boats (RTR)
Ready to run boats are now readily available from Hobby shops and Trade Me, so if you have one come done on a Club Day and we will help you sort it out.

Newbie's and Club Practice

Club racing has been modified as the pond will be drained for approx 12 mnths from October as part of the desilting of the far pond (Wildlife pond). 
We are working with the Council to try and have the racing pond at least half filled during this work so we can still use the pond for racing.
We are now running a Winter Racing Series every Sunday starting in June up to when the work commences in October. 
Classes for each Sunday will be different so each class runs every second Sunday. 
Racing points will be accredited for every race day and Hi-Points will be awarded at the end of Winter Racing Series. 
There is a possibility to have 8 or 9 days of racing per class. Points will be taken from your best 6 race days.
Those that still want to test, you are still most welcomed to come down as time will be organised during the day for you to do testing.
