iMBRA is a world wide Organisation for FSR Racing.

an international, worldwide and non-profit making association IMBRA is dedicated to supporting the development and quality of model boat racing, in all forms. It shall be run by racers, for racers and therefore the objective of IMBRA is: “To promote internationally, the highest standards in racing and co-operation to achieve common goals.”

iMBRA has been growing from strength to strength, which can be seen in large number of countries that decided to join in 2015 and the many messages of support we have received. In becoming members of iMBRA in 2015 they also confirmed their commitment to the most dynamic and responsive international model federation in the world.

Please note that if there is more than one federation/organisation that represents our hobby in your country membership is normally offered on a first come first served basis. However if we have received membership forms requests, and the completed membership form that is subsequently sent out, the committee will make a decision about who we feel is the best party to represent iMBRA.
