The Club provides a summer sailing course each year for Junior members. Our principal aim is to provide an enjoyable learning experience for young people within a friendly social framework.
If our adult sailing activities seem like fun the junior sailing programme is jam-packed full of everything our young sailors need to succeed. Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club pioneered junior sailing in Dublin and our first junior course kicked off way back in 1964. A lot and yet little has changed since then.Modern boats and Gore-Tex clothing may be the norm now but the focus certainly hasn't changed in over 50 years. We aim to teach our young sailors the essential elements of boat handling and seamanship. It instils in them a respect for the sea and the value of teamwork, co-operative learning and good sportsmanship. And, most importantly it builds a connection to the sport of sailing they'll have for their entire lives.
The best part? The whole experience is ridiculously good fun!
