Sailing & Events

Announcement

The Irish National Sailing Club is preparing for the arrival of eight J80 keelboats in January, growing capacity for training, group events and competition.

After carefully reviewing the requirements for the next phase of sail training, the team chose the J80 to accommodate 4 to 5 crew with a skipper with the small cabin adding extra options not currently available to the club in the 1720s.

After sailing catch-up - All welcome!

After sailing in the afternoon, the club meets for tea and coffee - courtesy of Kenny's Kafe - and a chat on the deck/rooftop at the sailing school. It's a great way for new and seasoned sailors, new club members, and students to meet. Great opportunity to find out more about the sailing club, and for sharing sailing stories and adventures. We usually stay for about half an hour and often continue in a nearby pub - so please come along and join us!
