Sowega Model Boaters

Welcome to IMPBA District 13. We are a family oriented Remote Control Boat Club. Our site is located just off I-75 in Sycamore, Ga., and sits in the middle of a 200 acre Cotton Field. 

In 1996, the Grand Prix Series was formed and consisted of Gas and Nitro Tunnel Boat Racing. The Series was four races that were hosted by the Albany Wave - Walkers, Atlanta Model Boaters, Hunstville Model Boaters and the Savannah Prop Twisters 

We still hold a series of four races a year. Two are hosted by SOWEGA Model Boaters,  Sycamore, Ga, One hosted by Charleston Model Boaters, Charleston, SC, and one by

Atlanta Model Boaters, Atlanta, Ga. 

Today, the series has added FE (Electric Boats) into the mix. We have Open Water on Thursday and Friday , with Racing starting at 8:00 AM on Saturday morning.  The two day format with limited classes makes for smaller races while maintaining a high level of competition.

At the end of the year the Grand Prix Champions are crowned and receive the coveted 


The SOWEGA Club host the February and November Grand Prix's.  We are also home to the Gas Tunnel Championships, which is a 3 Day event held in May of every year.  We hope to be adding an additional race in September 2019.  

Free admission to the public, bring your children and your lawn chairs for a fun day of packed out racing action!
