to the GREAT LAKES MODEL BOAT ASSOCIATION website.
We are the parent organization for many clubs across Ontario and New York state. The GLMBA was first
formed approximately in 1958 by a small handful of model boat enthusiasts. Since then many people
and clubs have joined the organization. Each local club holds regattas and events throughout the
season in areas of building, displaying, sailing and racing.
We are comprised of Scale Boats, Sail Boats, Power Boats (Fast electric and Gas Boats), Submarines
and Steam driven Models. Most of the boats are radio controlled but many are “Static ” or Display models.
From boats for fun to boats to competition If your interested in the Hobby check the “clubs”
