Welcome to Hykeham sailing club.
The club is located to the south west of Lincoln and occupies a lake of 180 acres affording great sailing to both Casual & Racing sailors. There is an active Windsurfing section and a thriving Model Boating Section. Affiliated to the RYA, the Club is also used by the Lincoln & District Schools Sailing Association which is an RYA Recognised Sail Training establishment.
Racing takes place on Sundays from the end of March to Boxing Day. A Summer Series operates on Wednesday evenings May to September. Sunday racing starts at 11.30 which is a single start Handicap race followed by two Class races, commonly Laser, Enterprise, Solo & Handicap (i.e. everything else!) The Wednesday Summer series is a single start Handicap race lasting about an hour and followed by a drink at the bar – not compulsory but rounds off the evening! The Club has developed its Junior Sailing Section which now has Toppers & the new RS Tera to assist with the Club’s policy of encouraging and supporting Youth Sailing. The Model Boating section organises a Race Programme on Sundays running from 9-11.30am.
Clubhouse and facilities
We now have a new Clubhouse erected October 2007 & a substantial decked area was completed in May 2008. The Clubhouse has a kitchen & bar which operates on race days, Wednesday evenings & various other Social events. We serve hot & cold drinks, food & snacks. Male and Female changing rooms have toilets & showers. Plenty of space & seating for ‘wet’ sailors to rest and a ‘dry’ lounge for spectators. Our boat park has space for approx 150 boats
The Club was formed in 1985 by the amalgamation of Lindum SC and Rustons SC which had both occupied the water since the early 1960’s but from separate premises. Rustons old Clubhouse is now used by the Lincoln Scout Group. The pit owners Butterley Aggregates granted a Lease to the Club which is now being extended to 2027 by the current owners CEMEX.
