Give your child a skill for life on our Summer Sailing Course!
Watching youngsters grow in confidence as they master the art of sailing is one of the great rewards for the staff at the Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School. Our summer courses will entertain, challenge and stimulate your children as they learn how to master a sailing dinghy afloat - and have fun along the way. We're delighted to back again at Poolbeg Yacht & Boat Club for the 2019 season, brining the adventure and fun from Dun Laoghaire into the heart of the city!

What the Instructors and Kids say about the courses...
Summer Course Structure
Students are assigned to groups according to their age, as years of experience has taught us that the children get the most out of the course when training with their peers. Students are grouped as follows 7-10 years, 11-14 years and 15-17 years. Within these groups the students are then sub divided according to their experience. We provide all essential gear for the course, boats and buoyancy aids, while wetsuits can be hired by the week. In addition our instructors are very experienced, the clubhouse facility at Poolbeg has modern changing rooms and we are fully insured. We have an excellent safety record and pride ourselves on our superb reputation.
With exceptional value on offer through multiple bookings, why not give your child the experience of a lifetime and open the door to a life of fun and adventure.
