Calendar

The Gauteng Model Boat Club meets at Emmarentia Dam, Johannesburg, near the parking area for the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens. Occasionally the sailors meet at other venues and this is announced on the GMBC WhatsApp group.

The first and second Saturdays each month are reserved exclusively for scale boats and steerage competitions.

On the third Saturday of every month there will be sailing races to allow skippers to tune up for the Championship regatta on the Sunday. On the third Sunday of every month a regatta is held for the GMBC Sailing Championships.

Apart from the last Sunday every month, which is Open Day, every other Sunday is reserved for sailboat racing. 

On the first Sunday of every month the sailors are invited to race at the Rusty Hook restaurant in Wilge Rd, Honeydew. 

The last Sunday of every month is an open water day, where all members and all boats (sail, scale and electric power) are welcome on the water. At these meetings no one class of boats has right of way over another, but Club 500 speedboats are scheduled to run from 11h00 to 12h00, sailing races from 12h00 to 13h00 and general boating from 13h00 onwards.

There is also 'Whacky Wednesday' casual sailboat racing each Wednesday afternoon.
