St Edmundsbury Sailing and Canoeing Association (SESCA) is a small, family orientated watersports club based at Lackford Lake, 5 miles NW of Bury St Edmunds.
The Club runs on-water events from the last weekend in March until early November. Dinghy racing is organised on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays with pursuit races being held on Thursday evenings throughout the summer. The Club also runs RYA (Royal Yachting Association) sailing courses and coaching sessions for members. A mixed fleet of dinghies is available for hire to Club members, so it is not necessary to own your own boat if you want to sail.
The Club hosts a number of other sailing organisations including the Bury St Edmunds and Mildenhall Sea Cadets; YPA (Young People Afloat); WASH Sailability; the Suffolk Scouts; Priory and Culford Schools.
We will be holding a Club Open Day on Sunday, 21 May 2017, from 10.30 am - 4 pm. This event forms part of the RYA’s ‘Push the Boat Out’ initiative to encourage everyone to get out on the water and celebrate a national weekend of sailing and boating.
Whether you are interested in dinghy sailing (pottering or racing), canoeing, windsurfing or just like the great outdoors, you are most welcome to visit the Club to see what we have to offer.
This listing has been added by a third party and we take no responsibility for information given.
The Club is disabled friendly and has a special section, WASH Sailability, running sailing sessions for disabled people.
