Lochaber Yacht Club
LYC was established in 1954 and our members have been actively sailing on Loch Linnhe since. We are an established RYA sailing establishment and offer come and try sessions for anyone interested in learning to sail. We are a family sailing club and do everything we can to get young people involved in sailing.
We have a number of social events throughout the year including a sailing regatta, sailing courses and ongoing Thursday Night Club Nights. We have an annual Prize Giving and Fitting Out Supper. We also host a successful Hill Race in association with Lochaber Athletic Club. Runners are ferried across the loch to run up and down the hill opposite the Clubhouse – and a tasty barbe afterwards.
The Club supports the Soling yacht – a former One Design Olympic boat. There are five active Solings racing and sailing on the loch most weeks during the summer. If you would like to come try sailing a Soling, please contact the Secretary.
Click all the links on our site to find out more, or give our Secretary a call if you like. You are welcome to come down on a Thursday evening during the summer to see what we are up to.
If you would like to join our sailing club in Fort William there is an application form on this page. Before you join come down the water on a Thursday evening to see what’s going on – just introduce yourself to someone to say you are interested in finding out more….
From time to time the Clubhouse can be hired for a private event – please ask for details.
