TO BE THE CLUB WHERE MEMBERS LOVE TO BE, VALUING THE GOOD TIMES SPENT BOTH ON AND OFF THE WATER

 Loch Earn Sailing Club Vision, 2018

As a family club, our philosophy is to make sailing available to all. Racing will be competitive and fun, providing entertainment and challenge across the field. Our racing credentials are well established and LESC is a highly sought after venue on the Traveller circuit with an excellent reputation for race management and organisation.

And for those new to sailing, LESC has been an RYA Training Centre since <date> and offers both adult and junior RYA dinghy, keelboat, and powerboat courses.

Sailing is open to anyone, no matter what age or ability. You don't need to be able-bodied, or even a strong swimmer. Our sailability section seeks to raise awareness in the disability community of the tremendous benefits that sailing can provide and aims to help people with a disability get on the water at Loch Earn.

We also use the IOCA class association Optimist or Oppy, the children's sailing dinghy, to support our youngest juniors in sessions on various Sunday mornings during the summer months to provide a more informal and practical introduction to sailing and racing in particular. Older children move on to the Topper dinghy. It's difficult to provide an age-based guidelines for these groups: with attitude and water-confidence the main attributes needed to enjoy dinghy sailing; some are ready to start as young as five, others will enjoy the fishing, swimming, camping, and all the other benefits of our family club!
