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.

Women at the Helm event 2019 in Dun Laoghaire

Have you registered yet for the inaugural Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm regatta ?

Around the country, women have been racing against each other for decades but this is the first time a regatta will be held at a national level, and the first time that clubs will compete against each other. The Irish Sailing Pathfinder Women at the Helm regatta is an opportunity for women to set a new goal for themselves or to simply enjoy the fun of sailing together and encourage a move from shore to boat, crew to helm or club to regional event. Female helms currently stand out from the crowd, let’s change that and encourage women to take the helm.

All welcome

We aim to include all skill levels and interests with PY Dinghy Racing and ECHO Handicap Keelboat Racing, encourage teenage participation at a time when many young sailors are dropping out of sport, put on some non-racing options through the Cruising Association of Ireland (CAI), whilst all the while keeping a close eye on our environmental impact.

The event is open to all sailors aged 16+ and on into the 60+ ‘Silver Sailors’. All must have a woman as helm. Men are very welcome, but crew must be at least 50% female (including helm).

In addition, we have a goal of 50% female race officials and organisers. So if you’re not so sure about competing but would like to get involved with the race officials then please get in touch to talk about training opportunities.

Prizes

Among the prizes is the newly created Irish Sailing Perpetual Club Team Prize, the only Irish Sailing official interclub award, which is open to all members of Irish Sailing Affiliated Clubs that enter a team of three or more boats of any mix of class.

 

Being environmentally aware

As part of Irish Sailing’s Sustainability drive the event is registered with Sailors for the Sea Club Regattas and will follow strict eco-friendly guidelines with eco signs, no unnecessary printing, no single use plastic, easily acc

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.
