The LCC Pontoon Lift out 2018 Sailing the North Sea
  • On the club pontoon

    Down on the club pontoon… a place to meet and socialise with other members or simply just ‘be’ with you boat.

  • Lift Out

    Getting ready for the winter season.
    Hard hats, hi-viz jackets & steel toecap boots – not forgetting the all-important life jackets – are the order of the day!

  • Sailing the North Sea

    A calm evening looking astern across the North Sea…

  • All aboard!

    It’s work and play in equal amounts at LCC.

  • Inland or to open seas

    Our members have access to a wealth of great sailing.
    The beauty of the Norfolk Broads is just a lock away, whilst the challenge of the North Sea lies just beyond the Bascule Bridge.
