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 17th to 19th May 2019 with an opportunity to try out sailing for adults who are new to the sport.

New payments system has gone live!

An easier way to manage your payments to the club

The increasing number of financial transactions (membership fees, course fees, etc.) being handled by the club has started to place an enormous administrative burden on a small group of volunteers and, combined with the increasing reluctance of banks to handle cash and cheque lodgements, has encouraged us to move to an online payments system. 

You will find a "Payments" link on the club's homepage which will take you to a secure site which will handle all of our payments in the future. For now, you can book and pay for all Junior Training courses, reserve and pay for places at next month's sailing supper, and pay for cadet memberships. Note that parents who are paying for a cadet membership  should first register themselves as a parent/guardian and then proceed to add their child as a cadet member.

Pico Club 2019 Information

Pico Club 2019 Information

Hi all,

I hope you're all keeping well and looking forward to the sailing season kicking off as much as I am! This message serves to provide information for the upcoming season of Pico Club, and in particular Pico Club Race Coaching. 

Just a gentle reminder, to participate in Pico Club, you must be a fully paid up club member! If you haven't renewed your membership yet, make sure to do so before next week. Details on how to do this can be found onwww.braysailingclub.ie in the membership section. Any questions, send me a message or email!

Pico Club
Regular Pico Club will run as normal for the coming season, with 20 sessions scheduled from May through to the end of September. Please make sure to arrive down an hour before the advertised time to get rigged and changed!

Pico Club Race Coaching
Last year, we brought in Race Coaching for our older, more advanced sailors and it seemed to work well. This year, we'd like to take it a step further and assign each week of Pico Club to a particular racing topic or skill, while also introducing the Pico Club Race Series.

There are 5 race days as part of the Pico Club Race Series. On these days, Juniors will come down as normal for Pico Club, but instead of a session on an aspect of racing, there will be races taking place that count towards an overall series. These races will not impact regular Pico Club, which will continue as normal.

After each race day, we will have a BBQ in the clubhouse for racers and regular Pico Club sailors, which parents and other family members are welcome to attend. There will be prizes issued for that day of racing. 

At the end of the season, results from all of the races will be pooled together to have an overall winner of the Pico Club Race Series.
The dates for the Pico Club Race Series are as follows:
 - Sunday 26th May (FG 1600)
 - Sunday 23rd June (FG 1430)
 - Sunday 21st July (FG 1330)
 - Sunday 18th August (FG 1200)
 - Sunday 15th September (FG 1100)

If you cannot make some days, do not worry! There will be prizes issued at the end of each race day and there will be discards too - so you could still be in with a chance of winning the overall prize!
