Welcome to our Club

VISITORS and NEWCOMERS TO OUR SPORT ARE ALWAYS WELCOME

At Lincoln Radio Sailing Club (LRSC) we pride ourselves on being a friendly inclusive club and welcome visitors to watch what we do or get involved with Radio Sailing. If you are just starting out in our sport and want to give it a try, you are welcome to come down, and one of the members will usually put a transmitter in your hand and let you have a go, maybe even a race or two just to see how you like it. If you become hooked we can guarantee that your weekly dose of Radio Sailing and meeting your mates will be something that you look forward to all week.

Membership:

New to the sport:

If you are new to the sport and want to find out more please call or email us (Click HERE) and we will arrange for a trial sail, hopefully, this will be enough to excite you but, we allow a number of trial sails before you join just to confirm that you are hooked.

Visiting MYA Members: We welcome members of MYA Clubs to attend up to 4 times per year without joining LRSC. We make a nominal charge for this and to help us organise this we would appreciate a call or email prior to attending.

Club Membership:

MYA Membership:

As part of your membership fees to LRSC you will be included in our annual return to the Model Yachting Association (MYA) and you will become a member of the MYA. The MYA is our national body that organises and controls racing throughout the UK. This gives all of our members the opportunity to enter events across the UK and offers reciprocal benefits for those who wish to experience sailing at different clubs. The MYA also provides the structure to our race organisation and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that members can tap into. Further information can be found on the MYA website HERE

Tip: This is a good place to look for a secondhand boat as there is a For Sale section within the MYA forum
