Loch Earn Sailing Club

As a registered Royal Yachting Association Training Centre, coaching for all abilities is available at the club. 

 

On scheduled weekends through the season we also provide morning sail coaching to members wishing to improve their abilities. As Loch Earn Sailing Club is run entirely by volunteers, unfortunately we cannot offer training or boat hire services to the public out with this.

 

There is also an intensive 5-day Training Week in July, open to both members and non-members. Application for places on our training week open from 1st May with application forms and full details appearing on the website around that time.

 

Meanwhile please enjoy these videos to get a flavour of learning to sail.
