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.

 

Please note we are a "members only" club so are unable to hire boats or offer training to non-members outside our annual Training Week in July.

Corona Virus Update

 

Dear Club Member

 

You should have received an email telling you what is happening at LESC, if you did not receive the email please get in touch via the commodore@lochearnsc.com email address.

 

There is an update posted in the member’s only section of the website letting you know where we are up to regarding the Corona Virus situation.

 

Rest assured that I and the committee are doing all we can at this time to make sure that LESC is looked after.

 

Our thanks go out to the folks that are close to the club and are looking after it while all this is going on.

 

We are trying to do something to liven up our sailing lives – the RYA have offered all clubs access to ‘Virtual Regatta’ which is an online sailing game and 2 or 3 of us are currently having a go to see if we can organise some ‘club sailing’ (on line of course) - 2pm on Saturdays anyone?  Unfortunately they don’t have Flying Fifteens in their fleet but they do have skiffs and Stars (well that is what I have found so far).

 

Finally a word of thanks to the committee for their help, support and input over the past 2 or 3 weeks regarding CV.  It is a challenging time and I am fortunate to have this group of people to help guide and manage us through difficult times.

 

Keep an eye out for further info and notices and see you on the water (virtual or otherwise) at some point in the future.

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.
