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.  Our New home base is the Boathouse at the Red River Exhibition Ground.

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.

The club lost a great friend and skilled model builder on 11 July, 2023. A member for many years he was a master of all things submarine. Our condolences to his family.

“How still,
How strangely still
The water is today,
It is not good
For water
To be so still that way.”

Our Next Meeting is Monday, 11 Sept 2023, 7:00 PM, at Boathouse at the Red River Exhibition Grounds. Enter at Gate #3 and park right at the Boathouse.
