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.

2018 was another busy year with the RYA Youths at Easter, Largs Regatta Festival in August, and the RYAS Winters to come in December. The RYAS Winters 2017 were just brilliant - 12 races for all, and 14 for the Lasers over the weekend. Big thanks to the two RO's, also all the freezing volunteers afloat and ashore. 

We have a very busy 2019 ahead with 150+ Lasers and 250+ Toppers late July and early August for their UK Nationals, then Largs Regatta Weekend at the end of August, followed by the Musto Skiffs UK Nationals early September with another 50/60 yachts.

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!
