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.
Training Week 2016
A big thank you to Neil and Cathie for organising another highly successful and enjoyable Training Week. A total of 39 students of mixed age and ability attended and much was achieved in developing sailing skills on the water.
Neil complimented the parents for providing such a pleasant group of youngsters as students. The adult students were well behaved too - most of the time anyway!
Club member Craig Pagett is a professional photographer and has very kindly agreed to allow anyone to download his photographs taken during Training Week. A small sample of his work is shown below. If you would like to view all his photographs you can do so by visiting:

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.
