Thu 4th Jan 2018 to Thu 18th Jan 2018

Our volunteer maintenance team will be doing their magic on the clubhouse between January 4th and 18th, so it will be closed during this time. If you can spare any time to join in with the cleaning, painting, checking and general sprucing of our club for the 2018 season, please, make yourself known via the office and be prepared to come along from 10am on a day or two during this process. The club will reopen for the quiz night on January 19th

The best FoCCR’s Christmas party ever was on Saturday 9th December at Largs Sailing Club. There was an evening of dance sounds provided by DJ John McFarlane, plus games, food and a Santa visit. Everyone enjoyed to late into the evening.

A full clubhouse very much enjoyed hearing Freddie and Hilary describe Arctic Tern's great cruising in 2017, from Howth in the south, to north about Skye, and the Outer Hebrides. They were incredibly lucky with the weather - unlike many others!

Their lively digressions on living with a dog on board, walks ashore, and other useful tips and pieces were much appreciated - as was Avril and teams' excellent buffet!

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.

We look forward to welcoming the annual RYA Scotland Winter Championships this weekend, December 9/10th. The races will be sprint format championships for all the junior and youth pathway classes. Watch from the warmth of the clubhouse, where bar food, snacks and hot drinks will be available all day

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.
