Sailing / Yacht Club
Loch Ard Sailing Club is a dinghy sailing club affiliated to the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) - the governing body for sailing in the UK. At a local level the club works with RYA Scotland and with the area coach. The club is run by an elected Commodore and a committee of around a dozen members. The club-house contains separate changing rooms and toilets for men and women. The large common room includes a coffee bar where members may purchase snacks and non-alcoholic beverages on racing days. Members have the use of the club-house at all times, though safety cover is available only during formal races. The club site offers ample parking for cars, and for dinghies and keelboats. A limited number of moorings are available in the bay for keelboats (but not cabin cruisers). The club has its own powered boats for race management and safety. The club also owns a GP14 dinghy, Laser dinghy, Optimist dinghies, and canoes for members to use.
