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!

LARGS SC's MAGNIFICENT VOLUNTEERS at the RYA Youth Championships were recognised at a reception in the clubhouse last weekend. A grand total of 89 volunteers helped on committee boats, RIBs, slipways, bridge, car parks, media, house and catering duties…and in all the preparation work leading up to the championships, and the clear up after.

We had 154 boats from all over the UK, 218 sailors, so with visiting race officials, parents etc, there were around 800 visitors to Largs, all requiring accommodation for a week or more, contributing over £250,000 to the local economy - and the club made a reasonably good surplus from the event, despite the adverse weather conditions of the first two days.

We hosted the 2018 RYA Youth National Championships from March 30th -  April 6th 2018, with around 250 sailors competing, in often challenging conditions. Monday and Tuesday's racing had to be cancelled due to winds of over 45 knots at times, but racing was possible on Wednesday afternoon, and Thursday's racing had warm sunshine! Friday was again breezy ..

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.
