The open winter series returns to Largs for 2017 with racing over five weekends from the start of November through to the start of December. The entry fee for visitors includes a boat parking space for the duration of the series.  The format will be two races per day starting from the shore with one class sailing shorter triangular courses where possible and the other sailing longer windward leeward courses.

We are incredibly proud to present Largs Sailing Club Cadets 2017, the RYAS Scottish Club Champions. Click on "read more" to see more photographs. Also on pages 4-5 of the September e-news - click on the pdf file below.

A full report from the RYA Scotland Zones at Loch Lomond Sailing Club is available on the RYAS website, here.

The best Scottish dinghy sailors across around sixteen dinghy classes take part in the RYA Scotland Champion of Champions Trophy at Largs Sailing Club over the weekend. The different classes of boat compete together, from junior to senior class champions, they race to determine which class and crews are best.

This open event for RS400, Skiffs and Cats, with racing held over two days on windward-leeward courses, had great weather on the Saturday for the first races - then grey and windy on the Sunday! Congratulations to the Robertsons from Royal Forth who took the overall first. Thanks to Martin Latimer and Mark Edwards for the photographs, and all who contributed to the weekend, afloat and ashore.

A great time was had by all at the climax of the LSTA training season, with racing on Saturday, a family party on Saturday evening, and fun and the prizegiving on Sunday. Immense thanks to everyone involved, afloat and ashore, for a great season!

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.
