The regular monthly quizzes continue, on the second Friday of the month.

Enjoy Avril's buffet before - book on 01475 670022, or club-steward@largssc.co.uk

Development Day update! We know that some of you are unable to attend all day on Saturday Jan 21st, so to help you come along for the session you are most involved with, we have broken things up. Before lunch, we will be asking for your ideas about WHAT we can do: on the water, family and youth friendly and social activities (1030-1215). After lunch, we will look at HOW we are going to do this: volunteer training and skills for delivery, marketing and communications (1315-1445).

Many thanks to the 20+ members who helped with the annual clubhouse maintenance work, getting the building ready for the new season. Lots of cleaning, painting - and other less glamorous tasks with the plumbing! Particular thanks to the members of the Firth of Clyde Coastal Rowing Club for their help.

This work saves the club a significant amount of money, and keeps the subs down, so all help is much appreciated!

Avril and her team had over 30 diners for her New Year's Day buffet, plus many members who dropped in for a refreshment, on a glorious winter's day, with a magnificent sunset.

The LSC New Year Race was run in bright and blustery conditions, two races were completed with 20 boats out on the water and enjoying the conditions. Full results attached, and pictures from Alan Henderson.

2017 memberships are now available - with most subscriptions held at 2016 levels. New is the option for family and individual members to pay by monthly direct debit, so family membership is £24.95/month, and individual £19.45/month. Also new is the removal of the restriction on house members not being boat owners, providing the boat is not in LYH for any part of the year.

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 LYH/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.
