Here's how you can get on the water this August and September!

We’ve had a great season so far, but contrary to popular belief the sailing and powerboating season in Ireland extend long beyond the Summer months. Over the next two months there’s still plenty of time to take up either sailing or powerboating and gain experience before the winter.

Our Summer Sailing & Watersports Courses for children are still in full swing, with courses running up until the start of school. Then we move to our popular Saturday Sailing during the School Term – the Junior Club which will see youngsters sailing right up until December.

Adult sailing and powerboating continues each weekend, and you’ll have a great weekend on the water on any of our courses.


Children’s Sailing & Watersports Courses

Summer sailing courses are running until the end of August – with children’s courses running from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm each day. The full details are here and we’re looking forward to welcoming your child along for a week of great fun, learning a new skill and meeting new friends.
