About Us

We are a group of volunteers who share a love of sailing and a commitment to provide opportunities for young people in our local schools and communities to learn to sail safely and affordably. We aim to teach children the basic skills to sail safely for pleasure, to gain RYA qualifications or to enjoy the thrill of competition.

The LDSA is self financing and runs on donations from participating schools, Limpets membership, grants from charitable organisations and funds raised by running adult courses.

We are affiliated to Hykeham Sailing Club and enjoy a close relationship with the many competitive sailors who are always willing to pass on their knowledge and experience. The club provides changing and shower facilities.

During the season throughout British Summer Time, we sail after school on most evenings and on many weekends. We have also recently become an RYA Sailability site.


The LDSA is based on the Apex Lake in North Hykeham. Access is down the lane next to the Fox & Hounds Pub. The lane is signposted with a brown information sign.
