Hi John, it was interesting that there are three clubs all within about an hours drive of me.  I will make further investigations when i go home on Friday.

Hi Darren,
            The club in Torrevieja sails at the top of the park of nations. It is a superb place to sail, lots Of islands to add interest. The club is well supported by many nationalities and has a lot of superb models. I've seen them sailing when I visited last May during the festival.
   One of the most outstanding features of the club is the support it gets from the council. They help produce a large glossy brochure, given free to anyone interested. they supply and look after a fantastic water and they give an excellent display facility for the exhibitions. If only our councils were the same. In return the club helps entertain visitors, and they are regarded as an asset for the town.
 Ive copied part of another post  with some contact details, and you can get more details from the salt museum in town.
 I hope this helps,
 Charlie.




radio controlled models on the lake every Saturday and Sunday throughout the exhibition. New members of any nationality or ability who wish to join the club are always welcome and should phone Carlos on 96 571 2657.
