Championships and Major Events

Largs Sailing Club is one of the major championship sailing clubs in the UK, hosting National and World Championships for a range of different classes.

We had a very busy 2019, with 122 Lasers and 234 Toppers in two consecutive weeks, late July and early August, for their UK Nationals, then Largs Regatta Weekend at the end of August. The Musto Skiff UK Nationals in early September has just concluded with 36 entries. The “Events” season rounded off with the RYAS Winters on December 07 2019 with 63 entries.

Unfortunately the 2020 D-Zero National Championships 26th-28th June, the Optimist National Championships, 1st-7th August were cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Hopefully a scaled back Racing Weekend at the end of August may be possible - club members and invited sailors who support our Winters Series from visiting clubs.

Plans for 2021 are now firming up with the D-Zero UK Nationals at the end of June, followed by the UK 29er Nationals end of July, and then the LRF Weekend returning at the end of August 2021.
