Welcome to Bray Sailing Club in Wicklow, Ireland

Bray is a picturesque and easily accessible traditional seaside resort a few miles South of Dublin. The sailing club overlooks the harbour, which is at the North end of the promenade. The club is more than a hundred years old, and many former members have earned national and international reputations. We cater for both cruisers and dinghies, with a full program of racing, cruising and an active sea school providing training courses for adults and juniors.


Learn to sail in Bray!

As well as teaching juniors how to sail, we are also keen to welcome new adult members to the club!   

We are running an Adult Training weekend on 8th to 10th May 2020 with an opportunity to try out sailing for adults who are new to the sport.

With this in mind, we are now seeking applications for our Junior Committee 2020.

Being part of the Junior Committee is a fantastic opportunity for you to experience what it is like to represent your fellow Junior members and to provide a voice for your peers. We want to continue to build on the fantastic success of our Junior Committee from 2019 who, among other things, achieved the following:
  • Leading our Turn the Tide on Plastics campaign which resulted in Bray Sailing Club being presented with the Youth Group Award at the Wicklow Tidy Towns Awards ceremony and the Irish Sailing Sustainability Award at the annual Irish Sailing Awards
  • The idea for Out of Season Pico Club activities which have been an overwhelming success
  • Presentation to the former Cathaoirleach of Bray Municipal District Council, Steven Matthews TD.

Application forms can be found by following the link below. Please email your completed application to training@braysailingclub.ie by 5pm on Friday 17th April 2020. Members of the 2019 Junior Committee are more than welcome to reapply this season.

In the meantime, we hope you all stay safe, stay at home, keep washing your hands and adhere to all other measures brought in by the government to tackle this problem. If we all play our part now, we should be able to enjoy another fantastic summer on the water!
