Model Boats

For as long as I can remember the South Shields Model YachtClub has operated from the lake in the South Marine Park in South Shields every Sunday morning. Lately these home made boats have had the addition of radio controlled tillers and booms.

South Shields Model Yacht Club has it’s own website too – click here

    You’ve captured the fun of the sport beautifully!
