Sat 27th Jul 2019 to Sun 8th Sep 2019

We have a very busy year ahead with 120+ Lasers, and 190+ Toppers late July and early August, then Largs Regatta Weekend at the end of August, followed by the Musto Skiffs UK Nationals early September with another 50/60 yachts.

See the Events page for more detail. An updated accommodation list has been posted to allow competitors start planning their visit to Largs.

Has been a great weekend of many short races to test all levels of skills - 70 boats and over 80 competitors out on the water.

Sunday was a cracking day of blue skies, a steady NW wind, and flat seas - made for some great racing, also not too cold.

A big thanks to all the club and visitor volunteers both ashore and afloat, without you we could not run events like this.

The Largs SC Winter series was run again in 2018, over 6 Sundays, with a revised format to give better, more interesting racing and with much apreciated support from Harken. We started earlier, with the first start at 10:30, to give time for more races up to three per day.

A group of nine LSC juniors had a great weekend on Ocean Youth Trust Scotland's 70 foot "Alba Explorer" in mid October, despite Storm Callum delaying departure from James Watt Dock until the Saturday morning. Saturday dawned very wet, but the team sailed to Lamlash, and anchored overnight, with the crew standing anchor watch. The OYTS sea staff were very complimentary about how everyone worked together, developing their sailing, social and independence skills - and prepared meals, washed dishes, tidied their cabins and organised their kit.

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.
