Welcome to Loch Earn Sailing Club, it's a Breeze!

Welcome to Loch Earn Sailing Club where we pride ourselves on providing relaxed family sailing and training in modern and fully equipped facilities, situated on the north side of Loch Earn near the St Fillans end of one of the most picturesque inland sailing lochs in Scotland.


The Club has a strong and varied dinghy fleet along with a good number of keelboats of various designs.

Well Done Eriskay!

RYA Scotland Youth and Junior Championship.

Helensburgh Sailing Club 29th - 30th September 2018.

Eriskay McLellan took part in the RYA Regional Junior Championships. With a fleet of 15 boats in the Topper fleet she counted a 2nd in the first race followed by a 1st in races 2 and 3. This gave her an overall of 4 points which meant she was leading the event overnight. On Sunday they sent out the regatta fleet but after a 30kt squall went through it was decided to abandon racing for the day so Eriskay had won overall. 

 

Eriskay has had a fantastic season; she was top LESC boat at the Brown Cup, 2nd Junior, 2nd girl and 7th overall at the RYA Club Championship.

 

Congratulations from all at LESC and we look forward to hearing about your progress next year.

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.
