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