Yacht Taster Sailing Course

Our yacht sailing taster course is coming to an end. After a comprehensive review of the training needs of sailors, and the feedback from Taster participants we've decided to consolidate the introductory courses together in our Keelboat Start Sailing Course, allowing sufficient time to get each new sailor to a good fundamental sailing standard. However, there are a number of gift voucher recipients and those who opted to reschedule due to COVID-19 that we're still very keen to get on the water. Please see our 2021 schedule below and call 01 2844195 or email to book.

The Boat

A 26 foot 1720 Sportsyacht which can comfortably accommodate 5 students and the Instructor/Skipper. The 1720 Sportsyacht is easy to manage and cannot capsize - in fact our fleet of seven 1720 Sportsyachts have internal buoyancy tanks fitted making them extremely safe.


All wet gear and safety equipment is provided by us – we provide waterproof clothing and Lifejackets. It really is just a case of getting yourself here and letting us do the rest.
