We are a small model boat club based on the lovely Springbok Estate near Cranleigh in Surrey close to the Surrey/Sussex border. Dunsfold Aerodrome is next door where BBC’s “Top Gear” is recorded. Springbok Model Boat Club is a sociable gathering of mainly retired people who share an interest in model boats of all types.
The club meets regularly on Friday mornings when friendly racing is organised once a month for the main model yacht classes - DF65, DF95 and IOM, one class a month. We have also introduced a monthly "scale sail" day for classes like the 6M, Starlet and motorised tugs, trawlers etc. Access to the lake, bar and facilities is normally available 7 days a week.

The Springbok Estate is also the location for "Care Ashore" which is a retirement home for former seamen.
