Topper and Optimist Traveller and Scottish Championships - around 30 Toppers and 13 Oppies are currently entered for this weekend, and more are expected. This is the final event of the series, which started last August, and there will be prizegivings at the end for the Largs event, and the overall series.

LOTS MORE INFORMATION in the attached pdf - ashore, and afloat. Get involved - race tracking, video, live updates from the racecourse, WhatsApp group. Eat in the clubhouse on Saturday evening - and watch the Champions League Final!

A great weekend's racing, with 44 boats from all over the UK - south coast of England to north of Inverness - completing 7 hotly contested races in generally light conditions.

The next cruise in company is over the weekend of 6th-7th July, for the Tarbert seafood Festival. This is always a very popular weekend, and the marina at Tarbert will be pretty full, so get there early if you want to join in!

Unfortunately, currently there is no volunteer to coordinate this cruise, so it may not happen as a LSC event. The subsequent cruise is on 20th-21st July, coordinated by Ann and Gordon Cochrane, on Night Owl.

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.
