Strathclyde Loch Sailing Club
Christmas Regatta Cancelled
Unfortunately the Christmas regatta has had to be cancelled this year due to the loch being frozen and the cold weather and no wind is set to continue into next week, leaving little hope of the ice breaking up.
Elf and Safety are happy that we are lined up for a white Christmas, but are very sorry for this cancellation and hope to see you all again next year.
Strathclyde Loch Sailing Club is located at Strathclyde Country Park in Motherwell, just off the M74, only 10-15 minute drive from the center of Glasgow where we have been established as an RYA affiliated Dinghy Sailing and Racing Club for over 40 years..
Strathclyde Country Park have great facilities for dinghy sailors, both on and off the water including safety boat cover, jetties which provides safe and easy launch and recovery of your dinghy as well as dinghy hire facilities with discounted prices for club members at very reasonable rates. They also hire out wet-suites and provide buoyancy aids etc. and as a club member you get free water access and rescue boat cover.
Our Clubs Focus is to Establish and grow a Dinghy Racing and Sailing Community within our local area of Central Scotland where we are active sailing all year round, wind and ice permitting.
We furthermore have free access to nice and spacious changing rooms with lockers and hot showers and our Club House provides an excellent venue for after sailing socialisation with tea and coffee and the odd bacon buttie.
