Welcome to the Lowestoft Cruising Club
Hopefully you have an interest in sailing and have arrived at our website as a result of a desire to learn more about the Lowestoft Cruising Club, if so we are very pleased to have you aboard.
Our club is not unique, but the way our club is structured and the facilities that our club can offer are rather special. From the day that the club was conceived, way back in the mid 1960s, the ethos of the club has been one of self help and membership participation. Without these two key ingredients our club simply could not exist in its present form or boast the facilities that our members currently enjoy.
Our secure marina installation can accommodate over 70 vessels all of which are accommodated in walk on and off finger type berths, with water and electricity available to all berths. We have good toilet and shower facilities and secure car parking available for the benefit of both members and visitors. In addition, winter storage, slipway, craning and the use of the club’s own mooring in Southwold are available to our members.
One major benefit that our visitors are grateful for is the close proximity to all the services that a visiting yacht crew might need. Chandlers, cash machines, bars, restaurants, take-aways, shops, bus and rail links are all within a few minutes walk. Coupled with our secure car parking this all adds up to our club making an ideal place to stop after a difficult trip or if you find yourself storm bound.
If you live and sail locally to us, why not give us a look and perhaps consider membership? By constitution we do have a limit to how many members that we are able to have, but at the moment we do have a limited number available. We always have an interesting program of events featuring both sailing and social functions. If you are new to sailing at sea, we have some shorter trips “in company” with more experienced skippers on hand to shepherd you through your first trips. We would love to have you with us.
So have a look around our website where most of the above will be covered a little more fully and if you want any further information just click on one of the appropriate links.
I look forward to seeing you,
