Welcome to Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club

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.

Every member who successfully completes the course & examinations will be issued a Radio Operator's Short Range Certificate of Competency from the Department of Transport.

Course Duration

One evening and one full day: Thursday 16th April 1930 to 2200 Saturday 18th April 0900 to 1600 + Test Time. The course provider will be David Gerard of Sea-Craft.



UPDATE Sunday Suppers 2015

Also, they are looking for volunteers who would like to demonstrate their culinary prowess or to act as assistants for the following Sundays going forward. From 1730 - €10 for 2 courses - volunteers are also needed to helpprepare a Sunday supper on a Sunday evening in February.
