Saturday produced strong Southernly winds averaging 26kts with gusts of 36kts and above. Unfortunately due to the high winds it was not possible to race so the decision was made to keep all fleets ashore for the day.  

Want to learn to sail, or cruise, or race with us, or just enjoy our clubhouse, with its fantastic view, bar etc? We have been running sail training - beginners to advanced, juniors (aged 8 and up), and adults - since April, and there is a youth sailing week in the summer. We have an active cruising group, a programme of dinghy racing through much of the year, and a strong programme of social events, particularly in the winter months.

We are also not just a "sailing" club - we now have around 40 motor boats in the club!

Annual memberships* costs from only £50 (house), and £85 (junior sailing). Sailing members with annual membership can take advantage of our discount card - save 10% on many goods and services e.g. Largs Chandlers, LYH hoist charges, Scotts, Bosuns, Saturn Sails etc etc - for full details click here. * New members joining after 30th June can take advantage of our late season discounts - joining in July is at 80% of the annual rate, August 60%, and September on 40%. Renewal in the following year (January on) will be at the full annual cost.

Largs Sailing Club

Largs Sailing Club was founded in 1936, and is now based in a modern clubhouse in Largs Yacht Haven, just to the south of Largs town centre.

The Club organises a range of activities for all ages and abilities, from the teaching of beginners by the LSTA to hosting large national and world championship events. We also run regular racing for dinghies and keelboats. Our active cruising section (sail and power) organises cruises in company around the Clyde and the west of Scotland, and holds regular talks and skills workshops. Throughout the year, we hold quiz nights, talks with guest speakers, and themed evenings including dances and parties.

Our waterfront location gives us the best view in the marina, as can be seen from the LYH/LSC WebCam. Our Lookout Lounge has a well-stocked bar and good bar food at reasonable prices, making it a welcoming port of call for members and guests.

Rooms in our clubhouse are available to hire for any occasion - business meetings, charity lunches, birthday parties, weddings, sail training, art exhibits etc., and are complete with wireless internet and AV equipment. Our fully licensed bar and catering facilities can meet your most exacting requirements.
