National Warship Weekend 2015

Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th July 2015

Glasgow Richmond Model Boat Club is delighted to once again be hosting the NWW on behalf of the Scottish Model Warship Association on the above dates.

Many of you may have been before so you know the score but for any new visitors this event is the largest warship show in the UK and has attracted visitors from Europe and further afield over the years.

Visiting clubs can set up static displays by the pond side and everyone is encouraged to sail as much as they want.

GRMBC will be setting up their harbour for coming alongside practice, the minefield will be deployed (or maybe not, calling all minesweepers just in case) and on the Sunday the warship manoeuvring competition will be held. Form a team of three and see how good you are at staying together.

In the past we have attracted several traders who specialise in warship parts and they may well be there this year also. We will be confirming this as we get closer to the weekend.

GRMBC will be offering drinks and snacks over both days to keep you going.

Both SMWA and GRMBC look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes

Hi all
With much regret I have to inform you that the above event at GRMBC has had to be cancelled.

The pond was routinely tested by the Glasgow City Council and found to contain dangerous levels of Blue/Green algae (Cyanobacteria). Despite desperate attempts to rectify the situation, unfortunately we have had to cancel all events for the foreseeable future on the advice of the council.

Sorry for the late notice, but this has been a bolt out of the blue to us all at the SMWA and GRMBC and to say we are devastated is an understatement. Who knows we may be able to hold some sort of show later on in the year if the council give the all clear.

Such sad news, by far the best show of the year
