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.

Cruising activity resumes!

 

 

 

Lots of on and off the water activitity is now happening at the club which is great to see following the covid phase 3 relaxations.

 

Heather & Andrew Eales have been trying out their new kite and furling system. The multi colours look great!

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.
