All LOBMBC events are currently cancelled
2021 World Campionships
After the disappointment of the 2020 cancellation the L&OBMBC are extremely proud & excited to announce the UIM have today awarded us the 2021 World Championships for both the OSY400 & GT15 classes, the event will take place on Saturday the 18th & Sunday the 19th of July. We will also run a National Championship round for the ever growing CPA Formula Grand Prix class.
This is a fantastic opportunity yet again for our club & the BPBA/CPA reinforcing everyones intentions for a better future within the sport.
The final plans have been completed for a major modernisation, extension and upgrade to the clubhouse.
As with everything this will be at a great expense but as you can all see from the drawings and pictures the end result will be fantastic for all!
Donations are welcomed and the payment details are shown on the WOBYC Facebook page. If you can offer any support it will be greatly appreciated, no matter how big or small anything will help!
Good News Regarding Coniston Records Week
The new Coniston Water Byelaws are now signed and will be active from 21st January 2021.
This is great news and a major milestone in our journey to return Water Speed Record Breaking to Coniston, even though we are not yet able to confirm dates and are also hopeful that much normality will have returned to the sport and the world in general by the Autumn.
The Records Week Committee are busy on the proposals for submission to the Lake District National Park for the event exemption.
The Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lake District National Park and BPBA for their continued support.
