October Quiz Night

Our new Club Steward Avril Leslie had a swift baptism with the most popular Quiz Night we have ever had, also a real challenge as few people had signed up in advance to eat! Only 30 had booked by Thursday, and she finally served around 60 on the night!

On Sunday 20th September Largs SC ran its Sunday racing as part of the Bart's Bash, a world-wide handicap race, commemorating the life of Olympic gold medallist Andrew (Bart) Simpson.

We were supported in spirit by Mark Andrews, one of Largs SC's most successful sailors - former Finn World Junior champion, long time training partner of Ben Ainslie, and a friend of Bart's. Mark will be sailing on the south coast, under his LSC burgee, and had this to say:
