Latest News

The July-August newsletter is now available - an extremely busy fortnight for the club, with the Laser and Topper National Championships in consecutive weeks!!

This was a massive effort from the club, with over 100 members helping ashore and afloat - so a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone. Also to Julia in the office, and Bosun's Table and their catering team.

We now look forward to the Largs Regatta Festival 24th-31st August, and the Musto Skiff National Championships, 5th-8th September.

The nights are drawing in, and the winter quiz series starts this Friday, 13th September, Steven Low is quizmaster, so there may be a music question or two!

Supper is at 7pm, quiz starts at 8. The two course supper menu is chilli and lime chicken or lemon and pepper scampi, followed by hot chocolate fudge cake or lemon meringue sundae.  £12 a head.

Sat 28th Sep 2019 to Sun 29th Sep 2019

The late August cruise in company, coordinated by Colin and Sue Brook on Inclination, had 8 boats visiting Tarbert - Inclination, Syrinx, Dawn Magic, Carpe Diem, Dipper, Meander, Cilaos, and Nkomis. The crews squeezed onto Inclination - 18 people together with a toddler. The sun shone and a great time was had together. This was followed by a group meal in Starfish restaurant.

The final cruise in company of the 2019 season is over the weekend of 28th-29th September. Cruise coordiators Ann and Gordon Cochrane, Night Owl.

Repeats every day 2 times.

Following on from the Largs Regatta Festival weekend, Largs Sailing Club held an evening Open Dinghy series on the Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Entry was free on the night, and the usual Wednesday night fleet split, and courses, were used, with an additional start for the Cadets Hiking Viking series. Well done everyone who took part, and helped.

Repeats every day until Sun Aug 25 2019.

It’s all happened - a great weekend of fine weather, hot sunshine - and little or no wind! This gave challenging conditions for the race committee, and frustrating racing conditions for the big fleets of 54 keelboats, and 34 dinghies, with fewer than the scheduled number of races being possible on Saturday, and a long, slow single anti-clockwise circumnavigation of Big Cumbrae on Sunday.

“The Musto Skiff National Championships were held at Largs Sailing Club from Thursday 5 Sept to Sunday 8 September. 36 competitors from all over the UK including 3 South African entrants.

The strong winds on on Thursday and Friday made for exciting sailing testing the sailors abilities to the full. After 5 races, Scots Jamie Hilton from Aberdeen and Largs sailor Jono Shelley held the top 2 places.

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.
