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.

Amazingly there's no YouTube channel for LSC, but there are quite a few videos available (click here to get you started). The best is possibly this one, which has a "tip" for sailing at Largs and, perhaps more usefully, and idea of the marks they use and the sailing area:

Largs is lucky in that it actually has a venue description in the book Wind Strategy by David Houghton and Fiona Campbell. The section has a description of the weather for the race area, along with likely prevailing conditions and the influence that the topographical conditions exert. It is invaluable information if you are attending an event or championship at the club.
There is some local accomodation listed here.
