Sailing Courses

Ireland has an abundance of lakes, rivers and waterways – not to mention being surrounded by the sea – so there’s surely no better way to enjoy this natural resource than by learning to sail.

Our sailing courses are accredited by the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) and at the end you will have developed not only a sense of respect for water and a certificate of competence but you’ll know the difference between a ‘halyard’ and a ‘spinnaker’!

Our fleet of boats include Laser Picos and Phileas Ludics – they are lightweight and perfect for learning to sail. We provide not only expert instruction but all the equipment you need to set sail; the boat, the safety gear and a wetsuit – all you have to bring are some old trainers, swim wear and a towel. So if you thought this was a sport only for the elite, think again. Sailing is accessible, affordable and above all exciting and tremendously enjoyable. It’s an activity for all the family.
