A great weekend's racing, with 44 boats from all over the UK - south coast of England to north of Inverness - completing 7 hotly contested races in generally light conditions.

Full results here, and numerous photographs on the LSC Facebook page, here. Click on "read more" below to see a few selected photos.

Have you ever had people shouting things at you on a start line, at a mark or half-way up the beat? Things like “up, up, up”, “room”, “I’m overlapped”, “room for four boats at the mark”, “hold your course” and wandered what the hell they are talking about?

Do you THINK you know the rules until the heat is on and then you’re not so sure ....... it’s many of us out on the racecourse isn’t it???

Well come to Largs SC and hear about and LIVE the RACING RULES and understand it’s all dead easy really!

The first cruise in company took place over the early May bank holiday, to Holy Loch, with 12 boats participating, including two motor boats - a great turnout so early in the season.
Many thanks to the Holy Loch Inn for looking after us on the Saturday evening, Holy Loch SC for the use of their clubhouse and BBQ facilities on the Sunday evening (we'd have been frozen to the marrow if we'd had to BBQ outside!), and to Doreen and Andrew Smith for organising a brilliant weekend, including the walk on Sunday.

Following the Information and Enrolment evening on Thursday 28th March 2019, the courses are now underway:

  • Monday evenings from April 29:  Senior Cadets (14 and over), Adults (beginners and improvers),
  • Thursday evening from April 25:  Junior Cadets (8-13) - beginners, intermediate and advanced

We will also run supported racing for cadets & adults (with RYA stage/level 2) as part of the club's racing programme on Wednesday evenings.

Repeats every day until Sun Aug 25 2019.

It’s also the Moths and Catamarans Scottish Championship - should make for a great weekend - even maybe a few Musto Skiffs trying out things before their UK Championships!

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.
