Latest News

The clubhouse was busy at the LSTA's information evening, with returning cadets, new cadets, and parents hearing of the season's plans from Johnathan Briggs, then Bill Forsyth about clothing and other practicalities. Courses start on Monday 23rd April. For more information, and to book junior and adult courses, see here.

New for 2018 is a new race group called the “Largs Development Squad”. This will be for dedicated race training with the goal of making the kids more competitive in races. We only have 12 places for this squad and to get it you must own your own Topper, Oppie or Laser.

Largs SC's Andy Brown won "Performance of the Year Award" at the recent RYA Scotland's Annual Awards ceremony, supported by Ocean Sailing Scotland. Andy practices at Largs, and 2017 successes included retaining his RS:X British Youth title, and Bronze at the Youth Worlds in Lake Garda, Italy.

Also honourably mentioned were Largs SC's Johnathan Briggs, for his fantastic work with the LSTA throughout the year, developing racing skills, and culminating in winning the Scottish Club Trophy; and coach Robbie Burns, for his work with many sailors, including Alistair Coombs from Loch Venacher who won the Youth Sailor of the Year.

Our regular Warm up series of 5 Sundays of racing to start the season, the series is open to visitors, and boat parking is availible. The format will be two classes, one on shorter triangle courses, and the other on longer windward leeward courses. Two races will be run back to back with the first start at 11:50.

A very full clubhouse very much enjoyed hearing all about John and Hilary Connelly's seven week summer cruise to Cornwall, Wales and Southern Ireland - with a few adventures on the way! Congratulations also to Avril and staff for serving about 80 diners!

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.
