Black Park Model Boat regatta
Black Park Model Boat Club uses the lake in Buckinghamshire's Black Park near Iver and Langley twice a week. In early September they hold a regatta with members and other clubs showing off their radio-controlled boats - sailing , electric or steam, no internal combustion engines. As well as boats on the water there are static displays. A small area of the lake is partitioned off by floating booms and visitors, mainly children, can try their hand at controlling one of a small fleet of electric boats. The club has a website LinkExternal link and features on Model Boat Mayhem LinkExternal link which has photos and details of many model boats and clubs.
