Loch Lomond Sailing Club (LLSC) is a family oriented sailing club, with an emphasis on racing and an active social calendar including cruising activities. There are often groups of members staying overnight at the weekends, sometimes having a BBQ on the beach. It is a great place for children, both on and off the water, and being set back from the road behind a locked gate makes it a relaxing private location.
Fresh water sailing on Loch Lomond provides excellent conditions for both Dinghy and Keelboat fleets to race and explore. For more information on our current fleets and club boats, please see the Sailing section.
The LLSC clubhouse on a sunny day
The clubhouse has a good kitchen and dining space which is available for members to use, as well as a large lounge with a log fire. Although there is no bar, members are free to bring their own drinks to socialise. Pop-up bars can be found at social and open event weekends.
LLSC is a licensed caravan and camping site. Plots are highly sought after and subject to a waiting list for participating members only, although a small number of camping and campervan spaces are available for booking by members and their visitors on a 'per weekend' basis.
The club is run by the members for the members, so there is some expectation on the membership to get involved in maintaining the site and organising events. We try to keep this to a minimum, but getting involved helps to keep membership fees low and is a further opportunity to meet new friends. LLSC is a recognised RYA establishment allowing the chance for club members to further their sailing, powerboat and race management skills.

Keelboat fees include the cost of a mooring during the season and hard standing out of season. Other fees and charges may be applicable.
Bringing New Boats
In order to promote good racing, the club particularly encourages prospective members to join classes for which there is already a fleet of three or more boats at the club. These currently include Hawk 20s, Flying Fifteens, RS200s, K1s, International Moths, RS Aeros, Dart 18s and Shadows.
Prospective members are encouraged to discuss with the sailing captain or membership secretary which other boats might be suitable to be accepted at the club before making a boat purchase; this can be fully reviewed when making an enquiry about membership.
If this sounds like the club you would like to join, or you would like further information, please contact the Membership Secretary.
We would be delighted to arrange a suitable time during the season for you to come and look around the club and have a chat with members regarding your experience and how your expectations align with what LLSC can provide. We look forward to hearing from you.
