Championships and Major Events

Largs Sailing Club is one of the major championship sailing clubs in the UK, hosting National and World Championships for a range of different classes.

Plans for 2021 have now firmed up with the One Design Regatta Weekend now sailed, followed by the UK 29er Nationals end of July, then D-Zero UK Nationals in the 3rd week of August, the LRF Weekend returning at the end of August 2021 - incorporating the Scottish and Northern Singlehanded Series, and a 707 Class Weekend in October.

We have now just hosted the Harken LSC One Design Regatta Weekend - just brilliant conditions, wind, sun and over 80 competitors, most totally knackered but still alive and enjoyed. See details in the link to the right.

We also look forward to welcoming the Optimists back for their UK National Championships from Sat 30 July to Fri 5 August 2022

There is a guide below summarising our event hosting facilities, local information, and attractions. Also an accommodation list, which has been compiled in good faith. LSC does not act as a booking agent, and does not warrant the quality of the accommodation listed.
