Looking forward to the best Nationals ever!

Many thanks to quizmaster Steven Low for hosting three virtual quizzes on Zoom, in June, July and August, with teams scatttered from the south coast of England to Aberdeenshire. Also to our club administrator Julia Gibson for the organisation.

Information on the next quiz will be posted when arrangements are finalised.

Stay safe, everyone!

Our new RIB "Theme", named in memory of our late honorary commodore and benefactor Finlay Forsyth's Loch Long, has now arrived, and is in the water. The engine is now being run in, and hopefully will see "real" service on club activities in the near future. A formal launch and naming ceremony is planned for the not too distant future...watch this space!

Some significant changes come into effect on Friday 3rd July, principally affecting our cruising members at this stage - leisure travel distance restrictions are lifted, plus overnight stays on your boat, and overnight anchoring, are now permitted. The 2 metre restriction remains on social distancing in Scotland, and there are also restrictions on who you can have aboard. The executive committee are working with RYAS and other clubs on how these guidelines affect the resumption of wider club activities. We are carrying out neccessary risk assesments and will update members on our schedule for resuming activities and reopening the clubhouse as soon as possible.

Full details of the new situation can be found in the RYA Scotland guidance note, here

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.

COVID-19 UPDATE: CLUB REOPENING

Following the relaxation of lockdown measures presented by the Scottish First Minister on 10th July, LSC is beginning to reopen clubhouse facilities for members in line with RYAS guidance.

At present, we are only able to open on a very limited basis, and are providing toilet facilities on the ground floor at the weekends until 1700hrs. However, we request that you do not use this as a changing area. The coffee machine and snack selection are available in the hallway, along with hand sanitisers and wipes. The main changing rooms and upstairs remain closed for the moment, but are constantly reviewing how and when we can increase facilities open to members and work towards a more normal club experience for all. All changes will be posted here and on our various social media groups.

We ask you to continue respecting the constraints we are still needing to keep in place to enable you all to keep safe and keep sailing. As soon as we can open up more of your clubhouse and offer more activities, we will!

Newsletter

NEWSLETTERS - CATCH UP ON THE ARCHIVE!

As regular club activities have been suspended since lockdown began at the end of March, the last "normal" newsletter was on 1st March, which reported on a breezy(!) Harken New Year race, standing room only at the first winter cruising talks, and our stalwart maintenance volunteers getting the clubhouse shipshape for the new season, including shower upgrades.

Our dinghy sailors have been social sailing and informally racing for some weeks, and our cruising sailors and motor boaters are increasingly active, now that overnighting aboard is permitted. We all look forward to a return to full activities as the coronavirus situation allows. In the mean time, enjoy looking back in the newsletter archive!
