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 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.

On the third Sunday of every month a regatta is held for the GMBC Sailing Championships.

Apart from the last Sunday every month, every other Sunday is reserved for sailboat racing. The second Saturday of each month is for scale and steerage competitions, and the third Saturday of every month is for Club 500 speedboat racing. 

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