What happens on the site

We are based on the shores of Castle Semple Loch in the village of Loch Winnoch.

The site is a multi sport site so expect to see a few other water sports activities  whilst here.

Upon arrival at our venue you will access through the large public car park where there is ample space to park up and  get great access to the water. Campers,Vans and Motor-homes are welcome on this site. We have created a competitors area at the far end of the car park on the large grass area in front of the loch. This area will be used cordoned off for rigging and storing equipment during racing. Please do not park in the area beyond this.

The Loch is great for windsurfing especially in a North Easterly or West to South West.



The club compound is based further into the site where we have our sail shed and teaching areas. We also have a toilet! which we are sure will be useful.
