Think that blasting around the loch in a dinghy is for you? Then give Loch Ryan Sailing Club’s website a visit simply by clicking here.

Loch Ryan Sailing Club (LRSC) is the local sailing club for Stranraer and surrounding areas. We welcome those completely new to sailing as well as those who have extensive sailing experience! The club can provide training, boat and equipment hire and safety cover amongst many other things!

Kayaking & Canoeing:-

Lochryan Kayaking and Canoeing Facebook page was set up in September 2015 to bring people together in this area who have an interest in Kayaking, this has been a great success, we have found that people had kayaks in their sheds and garages but had no one to paddle with and the facebook page has brought us all together. Working with SWSA we hope to increase Kayaking and Watersports within Lochryan and the surrounding area.

We now meet on a Thursday night at 18.30hrs at Stranraer slip (weather permitting) we practise a variety of different techniques and end the session with a paddle. We have 2 instructors in group and 1 person looking after safety. If you would like to join us you can find us on Facebook or contact:
