Scale Boats






In line with current government guidelines regarding coronavirus we are suspending all public activities of the KDMES until further notice. We are as disappointed as you are and we will recommence activities again as soon as possible.

Scale model boat There are only a few Scale model boat members within the club, and sailing their boats is not as regular as some would like.
It is hoped that these pages on our website will encourage more activity and bring the hobby to the attention of would be boat builders and sailors. With enough support there could be scale boat competition at club level, and for those who do not care to compete, at least a steering course laid out.

Coaster scale model boat Our club boasts three scale boat judges (at national competition level) so we should be able to offer encouragement to scale boat sailors of all abilities.

The sailing of model craft on Redcar (Keighley) Tarn is governed by Bradford Metropolitan District Council. 

Boats powered by wind, steam, or electric may be sailed by anyone at anytime.
