Just found this on the web, 23-2-2016. It's our old Mersey class lifeboat 12 - 007 'Spirit of Derbyshire' She is having a makeover in Valletta Malta and looking very smart. Credit for the photos to Gaetano Spiteri

Check out Ilfracome RNLI's website on Facebook -https://www.facebook.com/IlfracombeRNLI/ There is a slide show of her journey to Malta and the progress of  her refit right through to her launch and sea trials.

 The Ilfracombe & District Model Boat Club was formed by a small band of model boat enthusiasts who met on a Sunday morning at Bicclescombe Park, Ilfracombe to sail their models. After more modelers in the area got to hear of us and joined in our weekly get together, it was decided to put the club on a more formal footing and the Ilfracombe and District Model Boat Club was formed in 2000. We now have a membership of about 30 to date from as far afield as Gloucester, Somerset, Tiverton, Braunton, Combe Martin, Barnstaple, Torrington, Bideford and of course, Ilfracombe.

We cater mainly for yachts and scale electric and steam.

(Sadly no i.c. engines are allowed due to council restrictions).

 The lake is at Bicclescombe Park, Bicclescombe Park Road, Ilfracombe and we meet from

1000 to 1200 on Sundays and Wednesdays.
