Lympstone has had an active sailing club for over 123 years, providing sailing for members of all ages and abilities. Based on the eastern side of the Exe Estuary, sailing is based around the tidal waters of the estuary. LSC has a sailing and racing programme from April to September for dinghies, day boats and cruisers.
LSC has a well deserved reputation for being the most social sailing club on the Exe, with social events taking place throughout the year.
Members are warmly welcomed into the club. The Club house is open every Friday evening from 7.30pm for members and their guests to enjoy the bar and wonderful views across the Exe.
The club runs with the help and involvement of its members, with all members contributing to bar rotas or social rotas. Members with an interest in sailing can offer to help with youth training, race or safety boat duties. This allows us to keep joining fees very low and makes it easy for new members to meet people in the club.
As an RYA accredited Centre, we are very keen to encourage people to learn to sail. We run 'sail training' in the summer, usually on Friday evenings or Saturday mornings. We also run various race training sessions to encourage participation at all levels in our racing programme. On request, we run First Aid courses and Powerboat level 1 & 2 courses for members.
Apart from the clubhouse, the land around the Club including the harbour, slipway, dinghy park and most of the moorings are owned and administered by Lympstone Harbour and Fisheries Board. As a result, membership of LSC does not give members the right to store boats or use moorings as this must be arranged through the LF & HA.
Cruisers are craned ashore in early October, when members have to remove dinghies to make room. The dinghy park is limited in size so spaces are sought after.
