Latest News

A BIG thanks to all of our volunteers and staff over the week, also the many weeks leading up to the Nationals, and the Saturday clean-up ably assisted by the rowers - the feedback has been really good from the Oppi competitors, parents, and officials. The event could not happen without you. I was in the fortunate position to be part of the event management team, also Regatta fleet beachmaster, so got to hear lots of feedback at the daily briefing and 1/1 contact with - the RO, Jury, Safety, parents, kids, etc, etc.

Some great socials being lined up to compliment the sailing.

We're delighted to announce that Olympic Medalist and Swimming Commentator Rob Woodhouse will be our After Dinner Speaker at the 2016 Regatta Dinner.

Rob won a bronze medal at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics in the 400m individual medley and he is widely regarded as the best Australian medley swimmer of his generation. He has now just returned from commentating at the Rio Olympics so he can resume his day job of running a sports management company for some of GB's biggest sporting stars.

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.
