The Model Boat Association Dover (MBA Dover) was formed in May 1993, by a group of people who enjoyed sailing model boats of all types, and has now grown into a flourishing club.
MBA Dover operates on the boating lake within the grounds of “Kearsney Abbey Park" which is situated at the Temple Ewell end of the Alkham Road. There are car parks, a restaurant and public toilets.
The club meets regularly throughout the year to sail radio controlled model boats. Including electric, steam powered and yachts. All are welcome but I/C Engines of any kind are not permitted on the lake.
Regular monthly club meetings are held at The Cricketers public house in River, Dover.
Details of all Club and other relevant Model Boat events can be found in the "Diary Dates"
