Latest News

The recent Youth Sailing Week had a magnificent 41 young sailors, from complete novices to race improvers, take part in a great week, including a picnic on Cumbrae:

Of course, all this only happens with huge input from the LSTA, the volunteer instructors, and shore supporters, so many, many thanks to them!

Particular congratulations to 10 year old Eleanor Schofield, a complete beginner, who achieved her Level 1 certificate, and was awarded Sailor of the Week!

The mid August cruise in company was to Holy Loch, with 10 boats joining in - Voyager, Whippersnapper, Sunshine, Inclination, Dayspring, Hannah Jane, Sheer Delight, Salterns Nymph, Kaos, and Night Owl. Pre-dinner socialising overflowed Night Owl's cockpit, so the overspill had to gather below. This was followed by an excellent group meal at the Holy Loch Inn - particular thanks to landlord Craig and his team for coping so well with the numbers!

You can now see the current weather from the instruments on the roof of our clubhouse, plus the webcam looking over our slipway and towards Cumbrae and the Kyles, on our website - follow the links below:

The new weather display does not require Flash Player to operate, so should perform better on phones and tablets.

The next cruise in company is the extended cruise, "round" the Mull of Kintyre, 2nd - 10th September. Watch the cruising group Facebook page for the latest information. Meet in the clubhouse 0930 Saturday 2nd September for final discussions.

The final weekend cruise in company is 23-24 September, destination to be decided.

The season concludes with a social evening on Saturday 14th October. All members are cordially invited, and hopefully will give us a flavour of their cruising season.

Cruising notes are now on the web site - our collective experience of cruising the Firth of Clyde, and the nearer parts of the fantastic west coast! See http://www.largssc.co.uk/cruising. Remember the cruising group page on the web site, http://www.largssc.co.uk/cruising.

Entries are open for the full programme of racing and socials during Regatta Week from 26th August to 3rd September.  There is an early entry discount for entering the Regatta Weekend before the 19th August, and also a discount for entering all parts together. Entry forms and NOR can be found at the following links:

The entry form for the Regatta Weekend can be used to enter all parts.

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.
