To get to the clubs waters, which is a 26 acre lake, in places 200ft deep (so don't sink) drive to the newark road roundabout A1434, there is a garden centre on the left, across the roundabout, cont on the Newark road until you come to the Fox and Hounds pub on the left (its the only pub along the way) if you find yourself at Asda you have gone too far. Go round the small Asda roundabout and back the way you came. The pub will now be on your right turn into the trackway alongside the pub car park, there are sign boards saying HYKEHAM SAILING CLUB (full size boats) pass through the wide old gates and follow track around the lake which is clearly seen on your right. Beware - the track at the present time is bumpy. Anyway, drive around until you see real yacht park on your left, go to the second set of wire gates which are the entrance to where the model boat club sail.
Should you decide to visit the place, you should contact the club sec Mr Edwin Davies or e-mail in advance as the gates are locked when no-one is sailing. His phone number is 01522 796022. The club sails one metre and Marblehead on Sundays and Lasers on Saturday PMs and often during the week when the weather is ok.

Lincoln Model Yacht club are sailing on a temporary lake at Scotland Farm, Eagle lane, Thorpe on the Hill, LN6 9DY due to the manifestation of weed at the North Hykeham water.
We race each and every Sunday morning from 09:30 'til 12:30 and race predominantly three classes of Radio Controlled yacht, the International One Metre which is by far the most popular, the Radio Marblehead and as of 2014 the Dragon Force class of yacht with its strict class controls.
We have an active website where you can keep abreast of what is going on and this can be viewed at
We are always looking for new members and our temporary lake is the best in the Midlands allowing us to set courses whatever the weather and direction of the wind. Help and advice is always available and there will always be a club member to let you have a go at this exciting sport. There is no other activity on our lake and that includes fishing. We are a little light on facilities at present, but are hoping to improve on that front. If you want to come down bring a flask because once you have the transmitter in your hand you will need a coffee break after a few races!
We only race on Sundays so if you want to pop down just send Mick an email. Directions to the new temporary water can be found on our website or just Google Lincoln model Yacht club. We look forward to meeting you.
