Largs Sailing Club

Largs Sailing Club was founded in 1936 (see our history pages), and is now based in a modern clubhouse in Largs Yacht Haven, just to the south of Largs.

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 keelboat events. 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 is a welcoming port of call for members and guests. It has a bar run by club volunteers, which is open for club organised activities. During clubhouse opening hours, members can access a range of snacks and hot drinks, with an honesty box.

Rooms in our clubhouse are available to hire for occasions such as business meetings, sail training, art exhibits etc., and are complete with wireless internet and AV equipment.


The building is open every day from 8am and will close at the following times:

  Monday       - 10 pm (or earlier if cadets cancelled)     Bar - 8pm to 10pm
  Tuesday      - 10 pm  (or earlier if FYC racing and kayaks are cancelled)  Bar - 8pm to 10pm
  Wednesday - 10 pm  (or earlier if racing cancelled)      Bar - 8pm to 10pm
  Thursday     - 9.30 pm  (or earlier if cadets cancelled)  Bar - 8pm to 10pm
  Friday          - 5.30 pm  (later if a function is on)        NO BAR unless members notified
  Saturday      - 5.30 pm (later if a function is on)         NO BAR unless members notified
  Sunday        - 5.30pm                                                 Bar - 3.30pm until 5.30 pm

Remember members can access coffee, soft drinks and snacks at any time when the clubhouse building is open.

Members are welcome to make tea and coffee in the Lookout Lounge. Honesty box. Members can also bring toasties, soup etc from Bosuns and enjoy in our lounge. Kids can entertain themselves in the Snug, with its toy box.
On Tuesday mornings, 10am-noon, many members meet for a hot drink and a natter. Join us!
The clubhouse and bar will also be open as notified for club socials and training.
When using the changing rooms please remember not to leave any kit in there. 
Any queries please contact the office on



All regular club activities were suspended after lockdown began at the end of March 2020, and the last "normal" newsletter was on 1st March 2020, which reported on a breezy Harken New Year race, standing room only at the first winter cruising talks, and our stalwart maintenance volunteers getting the clubhouse shipshape for the new season, including shower upgrades. Little did we anticipate what was to follow ...

Lockdown restrictions in 2020 significantly reduced our dinghy sailing and cruising activities, but 2021 was better, and we hosted the 29er and D-Zero Nationals, and Largs Regatta Festival, almost as normal. Hopefully 2022 will see us back to normal, and we look forward to events including hosting the Fifes in June, and the Optimist Nationals at the end of July. Keep safe, and enjoy looking back in the newsletter archive!
