Special Weekend Sailing Course

Special Weekend Sailing Course

Following on from the popularity of the Try Sailing day at Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club, we are running a special introduction to sailing course for adults at the end of July.

 

We are on a mission to get as many people using our fantastic facility as possible. We have an active club only 4km from the city centre. We want people to experience the wonderful sport of sailing and see Dublin from a different perspective.

 

If you have always wanted to sail a dinghy – now’s the time! How about trying to sail a bigger boat? You can sail on one of the cruisers!!

Pilot Locker Scheme

Two steel presses approx. 6 feet x 3 feet x 18” deep with three shelves to be installed for Member's tools, parts & kit storage in the Boat Shed.

 

This pilot scheme is being introduced to meet the changing needs of members e.g. apartment living where tool etc. storage can be an issue.

 

Also it may suit different Classes to take a press to store common ownership tooling & kit on site where they can be easily accessed, rather than sitting in someone's garage.

RNLI Yacht Sailing Research

Lifesaving charity, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), has commissioned Substance to undertake new research with yacht sailors in Ireland. This is to understand their approach to yacht sailing and their approach to safety.

 

The research is in partnership with the Irish Sailing Association and supported by a range of other organisations including the Cruising Association of Ireland and the Irish Cruising Club.

 

The survey can be accessed and completed online at this link: http://www.rnliyachtingireland.substance.coop/

 

The survey remains open until April 30th and it is important that as many sailors in Ireland as possible take part.

IDRA 14/166 Update #11

IDRA 14/166 Update #11

It’s been full steam ahead (literally) since our last update. We’ve been flying through the ribbing, and it’s been fantastic to see progress as each station is removed to allow for more space to put the next ribs in.

 

In our quest to find the perfect way to steam the ribs, we’re now on version 4: a bicycle tube cut open and straightened out.
