What is NAMBA District 9?

NAMBA or the North American Model Boat Association, is the governing body of our sport of R/C boat racing. Different regions are identified by a district number. Our district, District 9, covers Northern California and Northern Nevada. Here in District 9 we race a variety of classes from 1/8 Scale Unlimited Hydroplanes to Outrigger and Sport Hydros. Plus Monos or V Hulls and different classed of Tunnel Hulls and Catamarans. We use three basic types of power plants as well.  Nitro, Gas and Electric. Are you interested in warship combat we have these in our district also.  How old do you need to be?  Well we have racers of all ages....from age 5 to 80 and up. R/C Boat Racing can be fun for the whole family and we have many family teams in District 9.

Our race season begins in February and ends usually in late October or November, with the grand finale the Top Gun Shootout.  We race in various locations in Northern California & Nevada. Spectators are always welcome and so are new boaters. If you come to a race and see a class you might like to try we have a number of boaters that would be willing to lend a helping hand to get you started. But BE CAREFUL! This hobby is very addictive...just ask any of our racers! For more information about racing in your area click on the Clubs and Contacts button to the left.
