We are a cruising club on the River Lee just below Stanstead Lock. One of the very few locks in the country with a swing bridge over the lock chamber. Water comes in very fast as the sluices are in both top gates.
The Club was founded in 1956 on an old boat moored approximately where the Stanstead Lee Valley Marina is now. Unfortunately it did not stay afloat for long, and sank. (but all crew were saved!!) The present site adjacent to Stanstead Lock was found. Much hard work by those early members included digging out moorings. In 1963 a clubhouse was built which still stands today. A number of improvements have been carried out since, including an extension which was added in 1997.
From the beginning the LSCC has always been a family club of all ages.
