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.

Blue Jetty Repairs: Important Notice to all Keelboat Owners

Please note that work has now started on the repairs to the blue jetty slipway. Until further notice the slip can no longer be used for launching/recovery of keelboats. All members are asked to keep away from the slipway area while welding and cutting is underway.

Committee for 2018

Plans are underway to form the committee for the 2018 season. If you are interested in joining the committee please contact one of the current committe members.

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.
