A great turn-out for the end of season Cadet Regatta, as you can see from these drone photographs from Alastair Khaliq. More photographs to follow!

The weekend kicked off in fine style with a fund raising ceilidh for the RNLI, headed up by the MacFadyen Sisters. Over £1100 was raised for this great charity, from admissions, raffle, and coin rolling. Thanks everyone!! This was followed on Saturday afternoon by the Ginfest, when numbers of speciality gin distillers offered the opportunity to sample their wares.

The Saturday evening featured a band night, and then there was the Regatta Week Dinner the following Friday, when LSC member Tom Thurlow gave his experience of mark laying at the recent America's Cup event in Bermuda.

Open event for RS400, Skiffs and Cats with racing to be held over two days on Windward Leeward courses. Skiffs include fast Asymectric dinghies with a PY of less than 930.

In recent weeks, Johnathan Briggs and all the volunteers with the LSTA have been encouraging and developing the racing skills of our young sailors, and the prizegiving saw the 20+ young sailors who had competed in the Largs Regatta Week midweek series (some in their very first races!) receive their prizes.

MANY, MANY thanks to a whole load of people - Johnathan for coordinating the whole thing, the anonymous sponsor who paid all the kids' entry fees, the sponsors of the prizes, race officer Kenneth Wilson (pictured, with Carolyn Elder, LYH), Janet McCarlie and colleagues, and the whole army of people involved in the LSTA, ashore and afloat. Keep up the great work!

The cruise in company "round the Mull of Kintyre" became a "round Loch Fyne" cruise, in view of the forecast, with 7 boats joining in - Corshyecan, Aliandy, Bethany, Carpe Diem, Inclination, Night Owl, and Sunshine.

An added reason to socialise was to celebrate Marilyn's Robertson's significant birthday, with group meals in Starfish in Tarbert, and the Oystercatcher at Otter Ferry. Plus of course the pre-dinner gatherings on each other's boats - many thanks to Corshyecan, Aliandy, and Inclination for their generous hospitality.

Largs Regatta Week, our major event, was blessed with the best sailing conditions for many years - and some of the best in this rather mixed "summer"! Cumbraes Weekend had round the cans racing for dinghies, cats and keelboats on Saturday, followed by Sunday's Round Cumbraes, both in sunshine, and relatively steady wind conditions. The week continued with the Midweek Series, and the Two Handed races around Arran, or Holy Isle. See for full results.

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.
