Information Quick Start

Loch Ard Sailing Club is in central Scotland, located eight kilometres to the West of Aberfoyle and nestling in the heart of the beautiful Trossachs region, near the Glasgow area. The club is located in the Trossachs and Lomond National Park. The loch is fresh water and is the source of the River Forth. Loch Ard is approximately four kilometres long by two kilometres wide, and provides excellent sheltered sailing water.

The following video introduces Loch Ard Sailing Club. This was produced for the Club by Terry Hill using aerial photography combined with other video. (To see this in full screen, view it directly on YouTube.)

Although the club runs formal racing, the atmosphere is relaxed. There is no pressure to compete, and members often just take a leisurely sail for pleasure. The club also welcomes children and non-sailing members.

Club membership is good value for money. Membership fees are attractive for families as younger children join free (or pay only a small amount), and a non-sailing partner can join at a reduced rate.

Information relevant to new members is distributed throughout these pages. Here are some pointers to get started:
