St Edmundsbury Sailing & Canoeing Association
Project Category: Other
The St Edmundsbury Sailing and Canoeing Association (SESCA) is a family orientated, volunteer run, watersports club based at Lackford Lake, 5 miles NW of Bury St Edmunds.
It was founded in 1981 on a disused gravel pit and has been built up into a flourishing watersports centre.
It is the only sailing club in West Suffolk, Mid Suffolk and SW Norfolk. The Club prides itself on being accessible to all and being a great resource to the local community. It has very low membership fees (family membership is currently £90 per year) and a fleet off club boats, so it is not necessary to have your own boat if you want to sail.
In addition to individual and family membership, the Club hosts a number of group members including: the Bury St Edmunds, Mildenhall and Newmarket Sea Cadets; YPA (Young People Afloat) – a sailing youth club; WASH Sailability (disabled sailing); Suffolk Scouts; Priory School (special needs) and Culford School.
The Club is a registered RYA (Royal Yachting Association) Training and Foundation (sailing with disabilities) Centre.
The Club is used nearly every day throughout the summer, with an average of 150 people per week using the facilities.
