South East Summer Cruising

Following on from our hugely successful 2017 July Cruising Programme we’re delighted to announce that our Elan 36, Beaufort Venture, will once again spend the month of July cruising the south-east coast of Ireland. A series of 5 mile building passages are planned and what’s more, our Cruising Instructor Gary Curran will personally lead each cruise, so not only will they be great fun, you’ll be able to practise the skills from your yachting programmes and get expert guidance while doing so.

The cost is reduced from what a usual yachting programme would involve to take into account that meals are not included, however, everything that you’d find on one of our Competent Crew or Day Skipper Courses will still be there. Each programme costs €560 per person.

If you’re looking to bring a friend or partner, it is possible for them to join in too.

Please note, you will have to organise travel to the start / from finish locations.

We're also delighted to have two RYA Competent Crew / Day Skipper Courses included in the schedule - perfect for those who want to gain a formal qualification in a setting outside of our usual Dun Laoghaire operating area.
