Strathclyde Loch Sailing Club (SLSC) is a long established (1978) Dinghy Racing and Sailing Club. SLSC is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).
The Club is based at Strathclyde Loch, part of Strathclyde Country Park. Just off the M74 at junction 6. Convenient if travelling from Glasgow. The Park borders Motherwell and Hamilton areas so easy access on local roads as well.
We meet twice a week, Sunday morning, all year round. Wednesday evenings April – September. Wednesday evening sailing will re-start in April 2020.
October to March we have a varied social programme: games, quiz, skills and film nights; see Calendar. Club members sail other days in ad hoc groups.
SLSC recently became an RYA Recognised Training Centre. This is an exciting new challenge for the Club. We have started planning for a full programme starting in Spring 2020. We are currently looking for instructors to help with our training program for 2020. Please contact us at phone no or email address below.
On Sunday 29th September we had a fleet of 16 boats, with 27 members. Following racing we had a celebration barbecue. Commodore Wilson Couper was also delighted to be able to present Stage 1 Certificates to six of our Junior members. The first awards by the new Training Centre.
We can be found in the Dinghy Compound adjacent to the Water Sports Centre. Membership includes access to changing rooms, showers and toilets. SLSC is an open and friendly club. Qualified Club members are eligible to hire Picos, Lasers and Wayfarers at reasonable cost, £5 per person
