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.

Some pictures from today's great LSC send-off (look at the crowd on our balcony) for the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust Round Britain relay, starting with Ellen doing some boatbuilding with our cadets!!

The five-month voyage will see over 100 young people in recovery from cancer take part in the extraordinary challenge - sailing around Britain in a national relay, celebrating achievement and realising potential. The crews will visit over 60 towns and ports with activities planned in each port. First stop is Glasgow, then Oban, and up the Caledonian Canal, and onwards. More information on the EMCT web site here.

Fair winds and good passages, and we look forward to welcoming the boat back in Largs in September.

There was a full clubhouse for the enrolment evening for this season's learn to sail (or improve your sailing) courses, running from 24th April, through to September, by the Largs Sail Training Association (LSTA), for all ages, eight and upwards. There are still a few places available - contact the club on 01475 670337, or secretary@largsssc.co.uk.

The LSTA has a large fleet of training boats, and volunteer instructors, teaching to RYA qualifications. Full details on the training page of this web site. Adults joining the training can offset their fees against their first year's membership of Largs SC.

The cruising season got underway over Easter Weekend, with several boats braving a stiff beat to Portavadie, then Port Bannatyne. The weather for the early May weekend cruise wasn't brilliant, but a very social evening was enjoyed in our clubhouse with our visitors from Troon CC.

The next cruise in company is over the long May Bank Holiday weekend, 27th - 29th May. Meet in the clubhouse at 0930 on Saturday 27th May to decide destinations and routes for a 3 day cruise.

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.

Huge thanks to the 61 club members of all ages who took part in our very energetic workshop day.  Lots of ideas and many suggestions were made (see the documents section of the club website – http://www.largssc.co.uk/club/publications), and some actions are now complete - cruising group Facebook page, all club day cruise 11th June, ropes on slipway to help singlehanders, "social sailing" on a Friday evening for those who don't want to race etc.

Some great conditions for club racing at Largs SC on Sundays (11:00 first start) and Wednesday evenings (19:30 start), as can be seen from Bill Forsyth's photographs.

Entry is now open for the D-Zero, RS200 and Vortex classes to the LSC the May Regatta. We will be running  windward/leeward and triangle courses on our great sailing waters. A Curry night has been organised for the Saturday night with tickets available for £10 each.

Entry for the event and curry night tickets can be ordered online using the links below.

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 LYH/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.
