WYA Acorn On-Board Regatta (6th & 7th September)
The annual junior On-Board racing event takes place on the lake this weekend from the Acorn site, where the club will again be supporting the WYA to run it. It means no club racing this Sunday, but we welcome around 100 juniors over the weekend for two days of racing. More details are on the WYA sailing events web site. If you're a junior, new to racing or experienced, then do come along!
New Clubhouse takes shape!
If you've been to the club recently this needs no introduction: Our new clubhouse is being built and there are some photos in the Gallery pages here and on our Facebook site to keep you up to speed with progress. You can still access the changing rooms at weekends but not on week-days (apologies for any inconveneience) and our sailing programme continues as normal.
Llangorse Sailing Club was founded in 1953 on the north-west shore of the lake. In easy striking distance of Cardiff, Abergavenny, Bristol and Hereford - Llangorse is arguably one of the most beautiful places to sail in Britain today.
The aim of the club is to encourage sailing as a sport for all age groups. Club members can sail on the lake at all times except during January. The membership ranges from those who find enjoyment just sailing around the lake through to racing enthusiasts. By special arrangement, schools and other similar organisations can apply for membership.
The changing rooms and Clubhouse are accessible throughout the racing season, which runs from March to November. On special events hot food is available, and on other days tea coffee and confectionery are available in the galley via an honesty box payment.
Club racing takes place throughout the sailing season, mainly on Sundays and there is a full sailing programme via the links (left). We have safety cover on the lake on Wednesday evenings from May to September too. We have a full programme for Juniors which includes Training, coaching and support, and racing. And we have a full club Training programme as part of being an RYA Training Centre.
LSC is an RYA Training Centre. T
he club is keen to encourage members to learn to sail and to improve their skills. To achieve that the club runs a series of training courses through the season. They range from a first introduction to sailing, right through to practice racing sessions. There is also a thriving Junior community of sailors (and their families) at the Club with a year-long programme of coaching and support (see links to Junior pages left).
See our 'Join Us' page (left) for more details and membership forms. The Club seeks to keep fees as low as possible and relies on the membership as volunteers for the running of the Club.
