One of the UK’s premier model boat shows took place here at WEC from 8th to 10th November. Marine enthusiasts were treated to fabulous displays of vessels from throughout the ages courtesy of the clubs and societies exhibiting, along with fantastic action on the indoor boating lake. Attendance by leading specialist suppliers enabled visitors to stock up on vital supplies for their hobby.
Younger visitors to the show were able to try their hand at controlling the boats at the popular ‘children’s hour’ which took place at lunch time over the weekend. Other highlights included a poignant tribute by the Surface Warship Association during the 2 minutes silence on Remembrance Sunday, plus nostalgic live singing from vintage starlet Kitten von Mew.
We are delighted to announce that the International Model Boat Show will return to WEC next year on 7th to 9th November 2014.
