The Hovercraft Club of Great Britain


The Hovercraft Club of Great Britain was started in 1960 by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to develop single seat hovercraft for racing or recreational cruising on rivers and coastal waters.

The national Club has 700 members nationwide, and is linked to the European Hovercraft Federation and World Hovercraft Federation.

The Hovercraft Club organises events throughout the year. These include hovercraft race meetings, cruises, offshore events and other social activities. The races are divided into Formulas from the powerful F1, capable of up to 80mph to the lowly F25 – small craft which can be both raced and used for recreation cruises on rivers, and coastal waters, There is also a Formula Junior for youngsters aged from 11 – 16

Events are held in different venues in the UK, on the Continent, and biennially as a World Hovercraft Championship.

There are six branches dotted around the UK, and members of the Hovercraft Club are available for help and advice with designing and building a hovercraft – this being the most important aspect of hovercraft ownership – though it is possible to buy hovercraft and build them from kits and plans.

It is possible to arrange a self-drive on a hovercraft for the more adventurous.
The club publishes a very detailed book “Hovercraft Constructor’s Guide” – also available on a CD-Rom

Premier Plus membership is 32 per year – for those with hovercraft who take part in Hovercraft Club events
