Early Saturday and Sunday Series

13/5/2022 - Races 3 and 4 of the Early Weekend Series were held last weekend (May 7-8) light airs. Thank you race duty team! Six dinghies came out on Saturday and eight on Sunday. In keelboats, eight came out on Saturday and 12 on Sunday. Results are now posted online and on the club notice board. Sunday also saw the first Sunday Morning Training session of the season. The next is scheduled for Sunday, June 5. This weekend (May 14-15) will be races 5 and 6 of the Early Saturday and Sunday Series and next weekend (May 21-22) will be the Loch Earn Enterprise Cup with keelboats racing on Saturday and dinghies on Sunday. See you there!

Update on the NHC Introduction

3/5/2022 - Colin Tait, Keelboat Captain, has sent an update on the introduction of NHC at Loch Earn Sailing Club including the current numbers. He adds, "If anyone has any questions on the NHC please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. It is important to get this right at the beginning of the season as it is a lot of work to change with every week that goes past."

Early Saturday and Sunday Series Races

3/5/2022 - No racing on Saturday as the weather was poor (to say the least). Sunday was light but at least not raining. Thank you race duty team! Sunday's races 1 and 2 are posted online and on the club notice board. We had three dinghies and eight keelboats boats out. Well done all in challenging conditions!

Beaver filmed from the Clubhouse

28/4/2022 - On a Friday evening in mid April, a few of us in the clubhouse spotted one of our a beavers swim along the front then come up on the beach by the small slip to enjoy some foliage left out for it. Mandy was not at first certain it was actually a beaver but as you can hear on the audio, she was soon convinced upon seeing its size!

First Fling, First Success!

25/4/2022 - It was great to see 16 club boats out for the First Fling last weekend. Big thanks to the duty team. Saturday was breezy -- well done those who braved it. After Saturday's racing, the social gathering seemed to be enjoyed, and Sunday wrapped up with light airs and glorious sun. Congratulations to John and Iain Best on the keelboat line and Gordon McGeorge from the dinghies. See the button for full results and watch the gallery for photos. If you have photos to share, send them to webteam@lochearnsc.com.

Planned Road Works on A85

20/4/2022 - Bear Scotland will be using a convoy system from 0700 to 1900 on the A85 between the club entrance and half a mile toward Lochearnhead on weekdays and a 30 mph limit outside those hours from Friday, 29 April to Monday, 9 May. This may impact access to the club requiring cars to queue in front of the entrance. Please keep this in mind if you are bringing your boat to the club during that time.

Social Media

5/4/2022 - Has anyone else noticed that an automatically generated Facebook page comes up first when searching for LESC via google? The webteam (new recruit Sarah, in particular) is trying to sort that and has created a managed Facebook page for LESC. If you're on Facebook, check it out and give it a like to help increase its visibility. It would really help out a lot. https://www.facebook.com/Loch-Earn-Sailing-Club-108042181826746

Work Party Day Photos

29/3/2022 - Well the Work Party Day was another success and the photos to prove it are posted in the gallery. Take a look at our wonderful club ready for a new sailing season! And if you want to see your photos there, send them to webteam@lochearnsc.com.

Work Party Day

18/3/2022 - The work party is just over a week away, Saturday 26th of March and there's lots to do. Please bring some typical gardening tools (ie. loppers, rakes, etc.) with you, if you are interested in the trees & woodlands jobs.

Dinghy Park Resurfacing

18/3/2022 - The dinghy park has been refreshed and it looks fantastic! Photos are up in the galleries tab. Thank you to everyone on the committee that helped make it happen. The works have highlighted that there are some dinghies that are not used very often and some that don’t have identification tags. If your boat has a sticker on it, please get in touch with the committee asap.

2022 Race Calendar Finalised

18/3/2022 - The fixture list has now been fully populated. Colin will upload the data into duty man in the coming weeks which will allow individuals to arrange duty swaps if required. In particular, LESC will once again host the Brown Cup this year and more volunteers will be needed for that. Email the committee if you'd like to help.

2022 COVID Policy

10/3/2022 - The club COVID policy hasn't been updated since last season. The Committee is waiting for the Scottish Government's announcement on 21 March when more information will follow.
