Bournville Model Boat Club
Bournville Model Yachting Club was founded in 1923 so this year is very special to the club as we celebrate our centenary. We started sailing in 1923 at Rowheath Park. By 1926, George Cadbury had commissioned an area of marshland on the now-famous Bournville Village Trust, to be reclaimed and a concrete pool of even depth was constructed. The Valley Pool was officially opened in 1933, and the sailing of yachts and power boats has taken place there on a regular basis since then.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see our updated boathouse, historical artefacts and photographic display, plus get close to the model boats in action! A number of radio-controlled yachts and boats will be available for visitors to sail.This event is part of Bournville Heritage Open Day. Many other historic sites in the wider Bournville area open their doors on Sat 9 Sept. For a full list of events in Bournville, click here.
