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.

Work Party Weekend & Prizegiving on Saturday 28th Oct 2107

A very big thank you to all those who gave their time to help at the work party. It was really great to have so many people. The Saturday was very productive with the usual actions of taking out the blue rescue boat, packing up the race hut etc all completed in record time. In addition there was a big tidy of old trailers etc and a revamp of the log shed with lots of log splitting so the club is ready for winter and looking good. Do have a look at the photos for both events in the Members area gallery 2107.

 Grounds and Woodlands Information

 

 

There is now information posted on the website relating to the LESC grounds and tree management.  It is on a new page in the members area.  Please log in and have read of the reports.

Housekeeping

The clubhouse and changing facilities have been used extensively this season. As a result some areas have become untidy and rubbish bins are not being emptied in a timely manner. Please can ALL members tidy up after themselves and not leave it to the gallant few. Thank you.

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.
