• GIFT VOUCHERS NOW AVAILABLE FOR CHRISTMAS!

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.
