The RYA have issued some new guidance to boaters in light of the current COVID-19 situation. They are strongly urging that recreational boaters respect the new government rules on avoiding unnecessary travel and activities, to minimise the pressure on local services and facilities. The full details of the RYA guidance for boating in the UK and abroad can be found here

 

Following the more restrictive measures presented by the UK Prime Minister and Scottish First Minister last night, 23rd March, LSC is now in total lockdown and from now, we do NOT encourage group, social on-the-water activity. We will continue to monitor our building on a weekly basis, thanks to two volunteers who will make brief routine checks while they are out on other essential errands.

We would like to ask our members to respect and comply with the measures being implemented in all aspects of their lives. Take care of yourselves and your friends and families now and we will see you once we can safely lift these challenging restrictions.

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.
