Cruise coordinators are Ann and Gordon Cochrane on Night Owl. Plan A is to go to Rhu marina, but this will depend on the weather. Final decision at the group meeting on Saturday 20th July at 0930 in our clubhouse.

We've visited Rhu, and the marina will give us a 10% discount on their normal berthing rate. The nearby Ardencaple Hotel looks good for a group meal on the Saturday evening.

Please register your interest with Ann and Gordon (largssc.membership@gmail.com) so we can confirm numbers with the hotel.

Repeats every day until Sun Aug 25 2019.

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 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.
