Aldridge Model boat Club is a new club formed in January 2017 with affilation to Aldridge Sailing Club, from members of the now disbanded Sandwell Model Boat Club.
Sandwell Model Boat Club was formed in January 1992 and had sailed at Dartmouth Park for 24 years following the dissolution of Baggeridge Model Boat Club. The origins of the Sandwell Club were in the 1970,s where Sandwell model aircraft and boat club sailed their craft at Millfields pool in Wednesbury. This pool was then closed due to pollution and for a while the club was without water until it moved to the newly opened boating pool at Baggeridge Country Park, unfortunately in 1991 this pool became overcome with weed which was impossible to remove, and the membership decided to move to Dartmouth Park Boating Pool
Sandwell Council in 2016 introduced Pedalos and Rowing boats and the club were forced to move to Swan Pool, this was however too Choppy for our scale boats and a new location was sort , and so in December 2016 Sandwell Model Boat Club was disbanded and reformed as Aldridge Model Boat Club
Our club carries out static and pool displays at many events throughout the West Midlands.
