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've 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 - see details of each of the events under their tag. The “Events” season rounds off with the RYAS Winters in early December 2019.

Next year, we look forward to the return of the spectacular Fife yachts 4th-12th June, the D-Zero National Championships 25th-28th June, and the Optimist National Championships, 2nd-7th August 2020, and LRF Weekend at the end of August.

There is always a need for volunteers to assist in the running of these Events. Don't worry if you think you know nothing and have no experience, we can provide training, and for some roles, raw muscle power is a great advantage! No one is too old or young to help!
