Come and try out sailing at a Hykeham Sailing Club Taster Day

In the peaceful environment of the Apex lake it is hard to believe that you are only a short distance from the centre of Lincoln.  Our Taster Days provide you with the ideal opportunity to try out sailing as a pastime.  You might go on to take it up as a relaxing hobby or even progress to becoming a keen racer or just use the day to try out sailing.

 Hykeham Sailing Club’s Taster Days run though the summer provide the the ideal introduction to sailing and you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome. They provide an informal friendly, yet structured opportunity to ‘have a go’ at sailing using a variety of boats to suit all needs.
