Kearsney Abbey Boating Lake

The Club;

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 for members are held at the Dover Transport Museum on the first Wednesday evening of the month @ 7.30pm


Details of all Club and other relevant Model Boat events can be found in the "Diary Dates"

Powerboat events: Members social sailing sessions are held on Sunday mornings throughout the year between 10 and 12am. The Club also organizes a number of power boat events throughout the year, Illuminated, Regattas & Club 500 racing (see Next Event page for details).
