For any second level student who wants to sail for their Leaving Cert...

Are you excited by the idea of sailing through your Leaving Cert? Did the Minister’s announcement that sailing can be included in the PE Senior Cycle set of a range of possibilities? Well we at the Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School have the experience, instructors and equipment to help you. Whether it’s learning to sail, attaining advanced qualifications, competing, becoming an instructor, or undertaking a sailing adventure, we can help.

Can you imagine finishing your essay with “when I finish the exams, I’m off to do the Round Ireland Yacht Race”, or “and this summer I have 8 weeks working as an instructor”, or “and the results of the programme I have outlined have allowed me qualify for a national championships”, or “and I hope to achieve my next level, having started as a novice in 2018, who knows, I could sail around the world someday”? Can you imagine the examiner’s excitement at reading a paper with such possibility?

The planning of the logistics, nutrition, fitness regime and pathway to attaining your goal are what we have helped our sailors achieve for 40 years.

The closing date for application for schools to be included in the pilot plan is January 16th.  If you have a plan, and you are within an hour of Dun Laoghaire, talk to your school - we have written to them already. Together we can achieve your goals.
