Adult Sail Training Program – Just Sailing 2021

View Post

 Our JUST SAILING programme for 2021 takes place on Saturday mornings during the sailing season.

This programme 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 http://skerriessailingclub.com/join-us/.

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).

For more information contact Gerry Byrne at byrnegerardf@gmail.com.
