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.

 

Membership currently ranges from very young 'gybers' to octogenarians, and everything in between, all with a passion for sailing. The club membership has a strong local contingent as well as a significant many who travel from across the UK and even overseas to enjoy the LESC experience!

 

Prospective new members can be sure of a warm welcome at LESC. Visit us any weekend in the sailing season from April to October, use the Contact Us web enquiry form or complete the application for LESC Membership form.
