The RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat in dinghies, yachts, windsurfers, canoes or powerboats and on inland waters or the sea.

As many members will know, Sue Kirby retired from Largs Chandlers earlier this year, after nearly 30 years of giving help, advice and assistance (and the odd comment!) to customers. What is maybe less well known to newer members is her long, long service to Largs SC, particularly to the cadets. She had two spells as cadet convenor, and was a major player in the club gaining its status as an RYA accredited training centre. She also had several spells on the executive and other committees.

Repeats every week every Sunday 6 times.

The Largs SC Winter series is running again in 2018, with a revised format to give better more interesting racing. We are starting earlier, with the first start at 10:00, to give time for more races up to three per day depending on the weather.

Read Alastair Khaliq's story of his voyage to St Kilda, as part of his Ocean Youth Trust Scotland ‘Young Leaders Development Programme’, along with 11 other young people.

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 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.

Clubhouse Opening Hours
