Welcome to the Moorhen Model Boat Club

The Moorhen Model Boat Club is based at the Roydon Village Marina, Roydon, CM19-5EJ, where club members have use of the marina facilities including the cafeteria, where there is always a smiling face to greet us. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at the British Legion, Radburn Pavilion, Latton Common Road, Harlow, Essex. CM18-7EG.   

We are a relatively small club established in 1979, but new members are always welcome to come and join us. We hold regattas on designated Wednesdays and Sundays between March and November, these dates can be accessed from the calendar button on the navigation bar above.

The club also attends a   number of shows and exhibitions   around the country, including the   London Model Engineering   Exhibition at Alexandra Palace, Wings N Wheels Spectacular at   North Weald Airfield, Essex and   the International Model Boat Show, at the Warwickshie Exhibition Centre. where we get to display our boats, and get to meet other clubs and the public, as well as raise funds for good causes.  We hold various social events including greyhound racing, ten pin bowling and just for fun a quiz night in December, where the winning team get a bottle of wine and a wooden spoon for the losers, of which some teams have a good collection.

Our club is very active and friendly, so why not come and visit us at Roydon Village Marina.
