Welcome to Llangorse Sailing Club
As an RYA OnBoard club it is also a primary objective to introduce junior newcomers to the sport. The club is also an RYA Training Centre and thus provides a range of training opportunities for adults too. There is a full racing programme throughout the season which runs from March to the end of November. The site and facilities are freely accessible to all members throughout the season.
Access to Llangorse Lake - for sailing in one of the most beautiful surroundings in the United Kingdom!

Junior Dr MacMillan Trophy Racing
Aug 19 @ 11:00 – 16:00
Our junior trophy races are slightly longer courses which run for 30-40 mins off the club start line alongside the main club racing. We offer a coached fleet to help juniors new to racing make it around the course and will ‘whisky’ finish any stragglers to ensure they get the most enjoyment from racing by receiving an appropriate finish place.

Cadet Coaching 10:00
Aug 26 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Cadet Coaching days offer FREE informal sessions run by a team of instructors. Sailors are grouped based on ability and we take them through various coaching exercises afloat, depending on the weather conditions, so that they can practice and improve. We begin the day with a briefing then normally go afloat before the racing fleet; a break for lunch, more sailing and racing in the afternoon; then we finish, often with a BBQ ashore for all (bring supplies)! Beginners will normally be introduced to the day with skills exercises and some fun; racing groups will do more advanced racing drills and training. All of them tend to get wet! Most of our young sailors are in Optimists or Toppers. If you don’t have your own boat don’t worry, you can use club boats free of charge on coaching days. By using Optimists and Toppers sailors are all in similar boats which helps them learn and it also helps us to coach! If you’d like to borrow a boat, p[lease contact Charlotte in advances she’s able to allocate boats Sessions start at 10:00am and the sailors will need to be rigged, changed and ready to go out sailing after their briefing. We break for lunch and finish the day at 16:00 (packed up and boats put away). No need to book, but if you can let us know by email if you’re attending it will help us to plan the days. We will have a registration form to fill out on your first session of the year. Make sure you’re on our email list to receive reminders!

Junior Trophy (run as part of Cadet Coaching)
Aug 26 @ 10:00 – 16:00
Run during our Cadet Coaching day making it a full day of sailing with a Trophy to win too! Open to all levels. Our junior trophy races are slightly longer courses which run for 30-40 mins off the club start line alongside the main club racing. We offer a coached fleet to help juniors new to racing make it around the course and will ‘whisky’ finish any stragglers to ensure they get the most enjoyment from racing by receiving an appropriate finish place. We use the standard trapezoid ‘square’ / inner loop/ outer loop courses they are familiar with from the junior & youth racing circuit with a combined start for all classes of boats and are scored on a handicap system. During these races, coaches will be on hand to help those new to racing make it around the course ensuring its never too early or daunting to get started! It’s so much fun with lots of banter amongst the kids.
