Over 40 members attended a very informative presentation by staff from Scottish Canals and Tarbert Harbour, on developments and current facilities of the Crinan, Caledonian, and Lowland Canals, including discounts for groups transiting together, and the new services with Yot Spot at Ardrishaig for assisted passage, restaurant, showers, chandlery, bike hire etc - see www.theyotspot.com/. Also discounts for groups transiting together, and a competition with a great prize - see www.scottishcanals.co.uk/winsailingadventure. Activities and planned developments at Tarbert include the news that the wi-fi has been upgraded, and construction of the new facilities building will start after the 2017 Scottish Series, to be ready for the 2018 season. The harbour staff will then move into the existing toilet and showers block. Tarbert also offer a 10% discount for groups of 4 or more boats.

A relaxed evening with Scottish-themed food and inhouse entertainment provided by club stalwarts. Starting with a nod to Burns, the haggis will be piped in by Mr Bob Randall and addressed by Mr George Hutchinson. Our MC Bob Byers will then introduce a surprising array of talent from your own club membership, with music, singing, and recital already promised during an excellent meal.  Booking essential for this popular event.

The regular monthly quizzes continue, on the second Friday of the month. Valentine theme to the dinner and quiz!

Huge thanks to the 61 club members of all ages who took part in our very energetic workshop day.  Lots of ideas and many suggestions for the Executive Committee to consider in planning the way forward.  A full list of the ideas discussed and captured by our hard working facilitators in the attached pdf, and is also posted in the documents section of the club website – see http://www.largssc.co.uk/club/publications

Many thanks indeed to everyone who contributed to such a positive day.

Two Largs SC members were honoured at the recent RYA Scotland Annual Awards evening in the Glasgow Science Centre - windsurfer Andy Brown (left, in picture) was the Young Sailor of the Year, and Tom Thurlow was Official of the Year. Many congratulations to both!

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 LYH/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.
