Loch Ryan Sailing Club is the main Sailing club in the Stranraer area. We welcome people with lots of experience and no experience on the water. We date back to 1844 when the first published record of a sailing regatta was held.
Events have continued at Loch Ryan ever since, aside from a break during World War II and until 1951 when the club was re-established to take advantage of the wonderful sailing opportunities offered by this sea loch which is eight miles long and three miles wide at its widest point.
In the recent past, the club has hosted the Dart 18 Nationals, the Tempest Nationals, the Laser 2 Northerns, in 2009 the GP14 Scottish Nationals and in 2010 the GP 14 and Laser 2 Scottish Championships, 2013 saw the GP 14s return for their Scottish Nationals.
The Club welcomes enquiries from Class Associations for similar-sized events.
