How to Join Skerries Sailing Club

To encourage new members, Skerries Sailing Club is offering a reduced rate of 50% of the base subscription for newcomers (please note that other charges may apply).

See Membership Rates here.

You will need 2 full members to propose and second your application, but if you are new to us and have no existing contacts, just e-mail Sinead, Membership Secretary on and we will arrange for you to meet people who can sponsor your application. Or drop into the bar after sailing and ask to be introduced to a committee member who will help you.

An application from is available to download below. 

Any applications posted to the club should be marked for the attention of the Membership Secretary who will guide you through the rest of the process.

Please note that you do not need to be an expert sailor to join. Skerries Sailing Club warmly welcomes newcomers to sailing and, indeed, sailing schools strongly recommend that you join a club sooner rather than later so you can put into practice what you may learn in classes. Even if you do not own a boat you can still get sailing practice. New members are given the opportunity to try different types of boat.

Skerries also owns a number of sailing dinghies which are available for the use of new members to improve their sailing skills. Occasionally, boat owners are looking for new crew members and often find them among new members.

The club also puts like-minded sailors in touch with each other to discuss the possibility of forming a syndicate to share the costs of boat ownership. Also, should you decide to buy a boat, we strongly advise that you discuss it with members who have expertise in this area (any member of the committee will put you in touch with one of our local experts). In the past we have been able to save members money by helping to negotiate keener prices for boats and, by spotting drawbacks, to steer them away from unsuitable craft.
