Clubhouse winter maintenance - reopening for quiz night Friday 19th January

The clubhouse is closed for its annual clean and maintenance work Jan 4-18th
Thu 4th Jan 2018 to Thu 18th Jan 2018

Our volunteer maintenance team has been hard at work for the last few days, cleaning, painting, checking and general sprucing up of our club for the 2018 season. Particular thanks to a big group of our friends from the FoCCRC who came along on the first day, and made short work of removing all the Christmas decorations!

Saturday's crew of Mike Johnston (plus dog Kirsty!), Hugh Maclean, George Mathers, John Ridley, Neil Stuart and Ken McClelland are pictured, having a well deserved lunch break.

Work continues through until mid January, so if you can spare any time to help, please come along from 10am on a day or two during this process.

The club will reopen for the quiz night on Friday 19th January.

New Year Race

Blow away the cobwebs with some mid winter racing
Tue 2nd Jan 2018

A chance to work off the hangovers and mince pies with the first races of 2018, two races on 2nd January at Largs.

In addition to Alan Henderson's action photographs (see the LSC Racing Facebook page), there is some great drone video from Hugh Macgregor here. Many thanks to everyone afloat and ashore who made the racing possible!

Ashore, Avril had the clubhouse open from 10 o'clock for coffee etc, then food available lunchtime.

The open winter series returned to Largs for 2017 with 10 races over five weekends from the start of November through to the start of December. Over 30 boats were afloat each Sunday, with some close racing.

Class 1 had an overall entry of 34 boats, with Alastair McGlaughlan, Prestwick SC, RS300, a clear winner with a string of first and second places to count. Jon Bassett Largs SC in his Devoti D-Zero was second, with other LSC Devoti sailors well placed - Martin Latimer 6th, Billy McCarlie 8th, and Howard Smallwood 9th. Class 2 had 21 entries, and on the top step of the podium were Martin Faulkner and Bill Forsyth in their RS200, with Simon Limb third in his RS100. Largs SC were well represented through the rest of the results. Full results here.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made the racing possible! Also to Alan Henderson for the photographs.
