The Winnipeg Model Boat Club was founded in 1994 by a group of avid model boat builders.
We build model boats for radio control as well as static models. Power for our boats includes electric, steam and of course wind – no internal combustion engines. We are an informal group with a common interest who enjoy sharing modeling designs and tips. Our skillsets vary from operating stock “ready to run” boats to building models from scratch.
In 2012 the Assiniboine Park Conservatory invited our group to sail our boats in the Riley Family Duck Pond located in Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg, Manitoba. It has been our home base ever since, although we boat in other locations as well.
See our constitution online.
To keep in touch with our group, please join our FACEBOOK page. Just search for “Winnipeg Model Boat Club”- you can’t miss us!
The Riley Duck Pond is a favourite location but members now have access to the Red River Exhibition Park Boathouse and Pond: contact us to see when we are sailing. Both ponds are at low water levels and, soon, the winter will bring hard water.
Our Next Meeting is Monday,09 January, 2023, 7 PM, at Photo Central, 957 Portage Ave.
