As many will have noticed, the winds are looking challenging for the first races of the series on Sunday 23 Feb. However, as we have already lost one day of racing to Storm Dennis a decision on racing will NOT be made until Sunday morning. Obviously those travelling some distance to the club will need to check forecasts and make their own decisions about the worth of travelling to the club before a Go/No Go decision is announced. Whilst this is regrettable, it is the only real option if we are to capitalise on any suitable weather window.

The RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat in dinghies, yachts, windsurfers, canoes or powerboats and on inland waters or the sea.

In a medical emergency a little first aid knowledge and immediate action can save lives, especially in remote locations. This one-day course is designed to provide a working knowledge of first aid for people using small craft and to support skippers.

A great turnout today for the first in the 2020 winter talks, with over 50 members and guests, so it was standing room only in the HK Room! The topics included by boat to the Kelpies on the Forth and Clyde Canal, Ship Design (why do these massive cruise ships not capsize?), the Fife Yachts (visiting us 4-12 June), and the Field Studies Centre on Cumbrae.

Next month, Sunday 15th March, subjects range from long term boat ownership to the amazing story of member Daniel Smith skippering Derry/Londonderry to second place overall in the Clipper Round the World race!  In April (date to be confirmed), there will be a liferaft demonstration, a repeat of last year's demo (see the video here), plus other topics to be arranged.

All members and guests welcome - and why not have lunch in the club before the talks?

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.
