Stewartby Water Sports Club - Powerboat Section
Stewartby Powerboat & Hydroplane Racing Club is the Powerboat Section of Stewartby Water Sports Club (SWSC) We are based at Stewartby Lake in the Forest Of Marston Vale in Bedfordshire.
In the 1930s Stewartby Lake, which is 220 acres of open water, was a clay pit where the brickworks obtained clay for the making of bricks. When it was no longer required it was filled with water & the beginnings of a leisure facility were born.
SWSC was formed in 1972 on land leased from the London Brick Company, which is now controlled by the Marston Vale Trust.
As a Powerboat Training Centre, we hold Taster Days when prospective powerboat racers can come & have a go. This can then lead to a Full Training Day which upon completion paths the way to obtaining a powerboat racing licence. We have 3 training boats for this purpose.
The club members participate in Club & National Championship Racing which takes place at various clubs around the country as well as at Stewartby.
Over the course of our history we have hosted many International Championships when we have had teams from all over Europe & the World.
We pride ourselves on being a hospitable & welcoming club to members from all over the world.
