Some information about the DRBC

The Durban Radio Boat Club is situated at the Blue Lagoon just 5 minutes from the city centre of Durban, South Africa

The DRBC is the only club in Durban that caters for Radio Controlled Sailing, Scale Models and Power Boats.

All sections are very active in pursuing their chosen sport or hobby with passion and enthusiasm.

Facilities available include a small club house and grassed picnic area situated on the banks of the Umgeni River with a seperate 200m x 50m pond that caters for all club activities.

As an aside there is a wide variety of bird life on the Pond and on the islands in the river which makes for excellent bird spotting.

Come down to the Pond on any Sunday morning and speak to one of the club committee members or contact the club by email

Please be sure to click on the links to the different club section links to see some of the scale models, power boats and yachts in action and for further information about each section.

Make a Sunday of it and visit the Durban Radio Boat Club for a very pleasant outing.
