There is an opportunity to learn to sail with Largs Sail Training Association (LSTA).

The discipline is a great way to develop a new skill promoting independence and self-reliance, and is a great way to experience the great outdoors.

The LSTA is an RYA recognised sailing school located at Largs Sailing Club.

They have been teaching sailing off Largs for over 15 years and deliver safe and fun courses for ages 8 and over.

For 2024, LSTA is expanding its programme to include weekly sessions on selected weeks during the school summer holidays.

You can give sailing a try or if you get the bug, you can do even more like their summer youth week from August 5-8.

There are also some one-day options available. On July 29-30, look out for a beginners course which is great if you have never sailed before. Adult training opportunities are also available.
