Almost 30 members enjoyed a very social laying up supper on Saturday evening, starting with an excellent meal from Marshona and her team from Bosun's Table

After the meal, there was a short summary of the season's cruises in company, and plans were outlined for winter talks in Jan-Feb-Mar next year. This will include another liferaft demo, plus talks on items of marine interest. We will also update the cruising notes, and publish a list of members' boats. Click on "read more" for more details.

Many of our volunteers enjoyed a thankyou evening hosted by the club, with Bosun's Table kindly providing a barbeque. During the evening, our commodore Ewan Macpherson introduced major events convenor John Connelly, who gave a summary of the events, thanked the many, many club volunteers and others who had made the events possible, and highlighted the significant financial benefit to the club of everyone's efforts.

Eight boats, 16 sailors, two dogs and a cat joined the final cruise in company to Port Bannatyne over the weekend of 28-29 September - Carpe Diem, Meander, Kaos II, El Obeid, Milou, Juniper and Loch She, plus coordinators Night Owl. Conditions were light for the passages to and from Port Bannatyne, but some boats managed to sail all the way.
The evening started with drinks and nibbles on Night Owl, celebrating two birthdays, and watching a spectacular sunset, and was followed by a very enjoyable group meal in the Port Inn.

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.
