The St Edmundsbury Sailing & Canoeing Association (SESCA) is a family orientated watersports club based at Lackford Lake, five miles NW of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

The most popular classes are: Lasers; Wanderers; Enterprises; Gulls; Picos and Toppers. The Club also runs RYA sailing courses and coaching sessions for members. A fleet of sailing dinghies and kayaks is available for hire to Club members, so it is not necessary to own a boat if you want to sail or paddle.
