2020 - Adult 'Introduction to Sailing' Course

To book, please do so directly from the Calendar or contact CY&BC at:

Are you interested in sailing?

Have you often seen people out in their boats and wondered what it might be like?

Well, the opportunity is here for you to try it out at Clontarf Yacht and Boat Club.

We run an Adult Introduction to Sailing Course every May and we dedicate a week of sailing to budding trainees. We also get great satisfaction in introducing new people to the sport we love and we keep it simple, fun and friendly!

We spend the majority of the course on the water helping you to start learning the ropes and may be sowing the seeds for more nautical adventure.

No sailing experience required.
