Latest News

We recently hosted a visit by Scottish Opera on their converted fishing boat Murray McDavid, performing Bubble McBea for the younger folks, and extracts from Pirates of Penzance. Very much enjoyed by the capacity crowd in our clubhouse!

You can now see the current weather from the instruments on the roof of our clubhouse, plus the webcam looking over our slipway and towards Cumbrae and the Kyles, on our website - follow the links below:

The new weather display does not require Flash Player to operate, so should perform better on phones and tablets.

Stop Press - After Largs SC's Andy Brown took Bronze at the International RS:X Olympic Windsurfing Youth World Championships on Lake Garda, Italy, it has just been announced that he has been selected to represent British Youth Sailing at the 2017 Youth World Champs in China this December!   Well done Andy!!

NEW! A series of social sailing evenings to encourage greater participation in dinghy sailing and use of LSC onshore facilities.

In response to requests from members, we are providing safety support for independent sailing, not instruction or coaching,  providing a safe environment for any member wishing to sail outwith our organised racing and training programmes.

NEW! Cruising notes are now on the web site - our collective experience of cruising the Firth of Clyde, and the nearer parts of the fantastic west coast! See http://www.largssc.co.uk/cruising.

After some enjoyable weekend cruises in company (or social events ashore if the weather hasn't cooperated!), many cruising group members are already on their longer summer trips up the west coast, or down the Irish Sea. Watch the cruising group Facebook page for the latest information.

The next weekend cruise in company is 22nd-23rd July, for the Bute Art Festival. More details on the cruising group FB page nearer the time.

The full season cruise in company programme, open to all members, is now on the website (http://www.largssc.co.uk/cruising) and we look forward to a lively and social cruising season.

A very successful weekend, with entries from as far away as Hertfordshire! Lighter conditions on Saturday became pretty brisk on Sunday, with some great racing!

Largs SC's Jon Basset headed the D-Zero fleet, with straight wins, and Phil Whitehead from Yorkshire Dales SC took the honours in the Vortex class. In the RS200 fleet, which had 9 boats from LSC competing, Brendan Lynch and Matt Morson from Port Edgar SC just pipped LSC's Josh Kerr and Fenella Corlett.

For 2017 there will be a full programme of racing and socials during Regatta Week from 26th August to 3rd September. The week is run by Largs Sailing Club, Fairlie Yacht Club, Largs Yacht Hven and The Scottish Sailing Institute. There is racing for Cruiser-Racers, Sportsboats, Etchells, Catamarans, and Dinghies. Cumbraes Weekend has a unique character with its mix of round the cans, and distance racing, together with our great socials. There was a good entry in 2016 with 35 dinghies and over 30 keelboats.

Further details of the event can be seen here at www.largssc.co.uk/regatta-week and www.largsregattaweek.co.uk

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.
