Adult Sailing - Which Course Should I Choose?


Our Sea-Bray weekend introductory course for adults has been postponed due to COVID restrictions. We are planning to run  the course later in the summer, having regard to guidance from the government, HSE, and Irish Sailing.  The safety of our trainees, instructors and our members are of paramount importance.   We want our new trainees to have a safe and enjoyable experience.


At the moment, a final decision has not been taken about the date of the courses but it will most likely be either the weekend of 21st-23rd August or the weekend of 4th-6th September. 


We will post updates here as soon as the situation becomes clearer. 

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and stay safe! 

Our SeaBray Introduction to Sailing course for adults will take place on the weekend of 8th to 10th May 2020.  The course starts at 7pm on the Friday and runs during the day on Saturday and Sunday. Call Philip on 086-8151700 for more information.
