2021 Juniors Spring training

With COVID19 restrictions slowly lifting and the return to outdoor activity permitted for school going children, we are now planning a safe return to sailing for our Junior Members.

We are happy to work alongside Irish Sailing and follow their guidelines to ensure a safe return to our sport. We have put a programme in place for Junior Training for the Month of May, to commence the
weekend of 1st May. The programme will run for 5 weeks. Training will take place on Saturdays and Sundays.

Due to COVID19 restrictions, sessions will not run if the winds are not favourable as we cannot presently do on land indoor sessions. Also, due to COVID19 restrictions we have a limited number of boats available for hire as each boat hired will be available to that sailor only for the duration of the training and not shared with any other sailor.
This year we can offer training to beginners but places for beginners will be limited. Please complete the online registration form.

The Closing date for registration is 23rd April 2021.

Pricing for Spring training is as follows:

  • 1⁄2 day €75,
  • 1⁄2 day with boat hire €135 plus €40 deposit (refunded if no equipment lost)
  • Full day €120
  • Full day with boat hire €210 plus €40 deposit (refunded if no equipment lost)

Sibling discount 10%. Sibling discount of 10% for 2nd and each subsequent child (does not include boat hire).

Starting times for training for the morning session is rigged and ready for 10:00 am.
Once groups are assigned there will be no change over of groups as again due to COVID19 restrictions each child must stay in the groups with their nominated coaches for the duration of the training to ensure contract tracing and limit contact with other sailors. This is the only way we can comply with regulations.


Payment can be made via cash, cheque or bank transfer. If using bank transfer please include your name on the details section and send a copy of the transfer to oliveparker69@gmail.com. Cash or cheque can be dropped to 32 Harbour Road, Skerries, Co Dublin.

IBAN:IE23 AIBK 9322 4810 2201 07


Finally, all parents/guardians signing up their children to May Training must attend a parents/guardian’s Zoom meeting after the first week of sailing. Failure to attend may result in your child/children not
being permitted to continue sailing.


Many thanks,
Your committee
