Watch the Elite Fleet Model Boat Regatta at Bow Creek Recreation Center’s pool on Sunday, March 4, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please note that the swimming pool will be closed to swimmers during this time.

The Elite Fleet of Virginia Beach is a scale electric boat club. Members operate surface craft of all sorts and scales, sailboats to submarines, military craft to civilian, from kits to scratch built. Model boat sizes range anywhere between 9 inches to 9 feet long. Participating members at this pool event are delighted to show off their work and are more than happy to give pointers and list resources to anyone wishing to build a working model boat or submarine on their own.

Bow Creek Recreation Center is located at 3427 Club House Road, off Rosemont Road. For more information, please contact David Merriman or an aquatic supervisor at Bow Creek Recreation Center at (757) 431-3765.
