25 August - 27 August 2018

The regatta is the premier event on the sailing calendar for on the Clyde with yacht, keelboat and dinghy racing taking place each day. For 2018, the regatta has taken on a new format and will be held over the 2018 August Bank Holiday weekend. Volunteers are needed on the water and ashore, so please let Julia know if you are able to help!

FUN DAY - wow - what a great day! The sun shone, and lots of people and families came along to enjoy the bouncy castle, hook a duck, jumble, cakes and BBQ, taster sails and coastal rowing, then the Grand Raffle, and the model yacht raffle. We even had to repel an invasion by Darth Vader! MANY thanks to everyone who made this day possible - particularly Julia, for pulling it all together!

Sat 1st Sep 2018 to Sun 2nd Sep 2018

Following the very enjoyable weekend cruise in company to Holy Loch in early August, with 8 boats participating, the next c-in-c is "Destination Arran".

The final destination will of course be decided bearing in mind the weather forecast! Meet in clubhouse 09:30 Saturday 1st September for final discussion. The cruise leaders are Colin and Sue Brook on "Inclination".

Please register on if you want to join us.

Many congratulations to our Commodore Ewan Macpherson, who has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list for his voluntary service to sailing.

Ewan has been involved in the sport for over 50 years, and somehow combines working with being Commodore of Largs SC, and Chairman of RYA Scotland!

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.
