  1. Welcome to Kirklees Model Boat Club, The club was first registered in the magazine, Model Boats in February 1978 as having twenty members.

    The first chairman and founder member was Joe Strand, the club at this time was called, Kirklees Model Club, as club members also ran model cars, boats, tanks and round the pole flying. In the years that followed the activities were refined down to model boat building and sailing, the club name changed along with adopting the Swan logo,in rememberance of the swan called George who lived on Wilton Park Lake.
