A little bit about our club

Roker Park Model Boat Club was formed in 2005 from a number of model boat enthusiasts who use the boating lake on a regular basis and now have 50 members. The boating lake situated near but set back from the sea front, was purpose built in the 1930's to sail model yachts and has been maintained by Sunderland Council. We consider ourselves fortunate to have these superb easy access facilities available.

Due to Covid restrictions we now only meet on a Wednesday and Sunday every week from 9am to 11am. We can also also hold two open days each year where possible to coincide with the 'Friends of the Park' events and is also subject to Covid restrictions. For these open days, we generally erect a large gazebo (in case of inclement weather), and members will arrange a variety of their self built boats. A lot of these boats have been built from scratch, i.e. from a plan, but others are built from kits that are available from most model shops.
