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 helenita.ryan@gmail.com.

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 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.
