About Arran Yacht Club

Arran Yacht Club was formed in 1956 to promote the sport of sailing on the Isle of Arran. The club is based at Lamlash Pier and as well as owning its premises has a long term lease on the Pier and adjoining shore.

Lamlash Harbour is an ideal area for sailing with relatively sheltered waters and scenery to die for. From the water you get views of Lamlash Village, Holy Isle and the hills behind, including Goat Fell.

During the summer the club holds handicap dinghy racing on Saturdays and some Sundays from Easter to October. Regular classes involved are Albacores, GP14s and Lasers but any dinghy with a Portsmouth Yardstick handicap is welcome to join in. In addition keelboats have their own programme of Cup Races and some join in with mainland clubs to race their series.

Arran Yacht Club is a registered RYA Training Centre and from time to time runs Powerboat and Dinghy sailing courses in conjunction with Arran Junior Sailing Club.

We have facilities for outside storage of boats of all sizes, a 10tonne capacity boat lift and indoor storage for a limited number of dinghies. Any body wishing to use these facilities should contact a member of committee.

Visitors are always welcome and can join and store their boat for the duration of their holiday.  All we ask is they contact the Secretary or Treasurer beforehand.
