The majority of our Members are boat owners (although membership is not restricted to boat-owners, nor to any particular type or size of vessel) and quite a diverse range of vessels are honoured to fly the ‘blue sky white star’ burgee of our Club. The twinkling lights reflecting on quiet One Mile evening waters can mask the disparity of little ship shapes and sizes at anchor, daylight revealing the true scope of our boating membership.
Cruising events, both power and sail, are regularly conducted throughout the year, by LSC itself and in association with other clubs – such as Southport Yacht Club – and like-minded groups – such as the Interclub Bay Cruise. Traditional stalwarts of the LSC calendar include the New Year’s Day ‘Jib-and-Awning Fun Race’ (where power defers to sail, sometimes in the unlikeliest and most hilarious of ways!) and Australia Day’s ‘Constitution Cup’ (where wind undoubtedly rules supreme!). Our Champagne Cruise, usually held close to Mother’s Day each May, is another popular calendar favourite.
