History

ModelBoat 13Although founded in 2016, the Cambridge Model Yacht Club can trace its history back to 1950 when the Cambridge Model Boat Club was founded.  The Cambridge Model Boat Club encompassed both yacht racing and scale model boats, however in 2015 carp fishing interests at the club’s lake in Histon prevented us from laying out racing buoys in the lake.

Cambridge Model Yacht Club was formed at this point and after a period at Rectory Farm in Milton, we moved to new waters at Milton Country Park in 2017.  Due to management changes there we are now without our own water, but sail occasionally at  Lackford Lakes.  The club is affiliated to the Model Yachting Association, the UK governing body.
