New clubhouse comes to life!
This fantastic image gives you a real-life impression of our new clubhouse proposal.  There's a lot more work to do to make this a reality of course but the club committee are progressing funding and planning applications and will be in touch with more news, we hope, very soon.
New Clubhouse
 
The Club:
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.

Activities

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.

Training

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).

Membership

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.
