The weekend kicked off in fine style with a fund raising ceilidh for the RNLI, headed up by the MacFadyen Sisters. Over £1100 was raised for this great charity, from admissions, raffle, and coin rolling. Thanks everyone!! This was followed on Saturday afternoon by the Ginfest, when numbers of speciality gin distillers offered the opportunity to sample their wares.
The Saturday evening featured a band night, and then there was the Regatta Week Dinner the following Friday, when LSC member Tom Thurlow gave his experience of mark laying at the recent America's Cup event in Bermuda.
Full report on Largs Regatta Week, 26th Aug - 3rd Sept - great weather for racing, great programme of social events! Lots of young sailors competing in the midweek races, updates on the cruising group, forthcoming social events at the club, FIRE at the marina - and so on!
This open event for RS400, Skiffs and Cats, with racing held over two days on windward-leeward courses, had great weather on the Saturday for the first races - then grey and windy on the Sunday! Congratulations to the Robertsons from Royal Forth who took the overall first. Thanks to Martin Latimer and Mark Edwards for the photographs, and all who contributed to the weekend, afloat and ashore.
Come along to our America's Cup dinner on Friday evening, when you will hear some of the inside stories of the event from those who were there. Tickets £15 from LYH reception, or the bar at the club. All welcome!

A social evening, open to all members, on the middle evening of Scotland's Boat Show
Sat 14th Oct 2017
A social evening, open to all members, on the middle evening of Scotland's Boat Show, 14/15 October at Kip Marina, plus boats for viewing at Largs and Troon as well.
This weekend is popular with many of the cruising group, including those who live a distance from Largs. An ideal time to get people together with a supper in the clubhouse and reinforce all the lively exchanges on the cruising group Facebook page by putting faces to names and names to boats and discussing experiences, aspirations, and anything else relevant to cruising. More details nearer the time.
Friday evening is the October quiz night, so make a weekend of it!
