ABOUT THE CLUB

 

Founded in 1957, Lincoln Canoe Club (LCC) is based on The Brayford in Lincoln. 

We are predominantly a flatwater racing club, and hope to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the pleasure of paddling, whatever their age or experience.  Through keeping our costs low and providing as much equipment as possible, we aim to make it an accessible sport for all.

LCC is run by the members as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC).   All our club coaches are British Canoeing qualified. Alongside the competitive racing, the club is renowned for its warm and friendly atmosphere.  We try to ensure there is something for everyone – both on and off the water

About Lincoln Canoe Club (LCC)

 

Founded in 1957, Lincoln Canoe Club (LCC) is based in the historic city of Lincoln alongside the Brayford Pool.

.

We are primarily a flatwater racing club, and hope to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the pleasure of paddling, whatever their age or experience.  Through keeping our costs low and providing as much equipment as possible, we aim to make it an accessible sport for all and also have Recreational Canoe and Kayak Sessions every Saturday and Sunday mornings throughout the year. Also, this year we have introduced Stand up Paddleboards (SUP's) as a welcome addition to our recreational side.

LCC is run by the members as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) and all our club coaches are British Canoeing qualified.

New members are very welcome here at Lincoln Canoe Club, which is one of the best-known canoe clubs in the country.
Lincoln's sheltered waterways are ideal for beginners and racing champions alike. Introductory courses are available during the spring and summer for those who have not canoed before.

The Club's premises are wonderfully situated on the south bank of the picturesque Brayford Pool, to the east of the University of Lincoln, and members have immediate access to the water from the Club's own landing stage.

The Club's magnificent building, which houses a comprehensive range of equipment and facilities, was opened in 1996 by HM Queen Elizabeth II - a tribute to a history of nearly 40 years (now 60 years) of successful canoeing!
Lincoln Canoe Club has a distinguished record. The Honours Boards record many years of international competition. The Chairman for very many years (and now a Vice President), Laurence Oliver, has competed in 3 Olympic Games. His wisdom and advice, along with that of many other experienced members, is readily available to new paddlers. 
The Club is successful in racing but encourages all forms of canoeing. There are many members who canoe recreationally. Membership is possible from the age of 8, or younger if accompanied by a parent.
