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. 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 are now cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Hopefully a scaled back LRF at the end of August may still happen.

"It is with regret that the Committee have decided to cancel both the D Zero and Optimist National Championships which were scheduled for June and early August. The D Zero class have reschedule to 2021. Thanks to all of our members who had agreed to help out at the 2 events"

We are still hoping to go ahead with the Dinghy racing on Saturday & Sunday 29/30 August 2020 subject to social distancing, other restrictions, etc. We are monitoring events here in Scotland closely and a decision re format, go/no-go, etc will be made closer to the time.

I started racing dinghies in 1959 at Stone Sailing Club on the River Blackwater in Essex using a “Teach Yourself Sailing” book. My father built the 3 International Cadets that I raced until the age of 14 when I took over the helm of our Shearwater catamaran.  ...
