Adult Sail Training Program – “Just Sailing”

View Post

Our popular annual Just Sailing Theory of Sailing Course for 2024 is underway . If you would like to join us please email

This course is ideal for newcomers seeking to prepare for our Saturday morning on-the-water Just Sailing sessions which will commence in early May. Both courses are also ideal for parents and/or spouses of members thinking of giving this sailing lark a go themselves. Everyone seeking to take part MUST reserve a place in advance by emailing Helen.

There is no charge for the Theory of Sailing course and non-members are also welcome. However, to take instruction afloat you must be a member of the club.

Just Sailing is designed to provide basic sail training for adult newcomers to sailing. You must be a member of Skerries Sailing Club to participate. Just Sailing is free for new members. To join the club click here

We meet on Saturday mornings at 9.30 am and, weather permitting, tuition and practice takes place in a variety of club owned boats. Members may also use their own boats. A safety boat is always in attendance and instructors will help you improve your technique. Tuition is provided ashore when it is too windy or rough to go afloat. A series of free recorded Zoom talks on the Theory of Sailing, which accompanies the programme, is available on YouTube (see below).
