Adult Sail Training

Our Adult Training Courses cater for anyone aged 18+. These courses are usually run one to two days a week, in the evening, over a series of weeks. We start the programme with a night of theory, so that everyone can grasp the basics of sailing. We then progress to sailing on our Topaz Omegas. We also provide opportunities for people to experience sailing on cruising yachts which participate in cruiser racing throughout the summer.

Our Adult Training Courses are run by our ISA trained Sailing Instructors who are equipped with years of on the water experience, First Aid, Water Safety Training, Garda Vetting and Power Boat Licenses.

If you have any queries regarding our Adult Training Courses please do not hesitate to get in contact with us via our Website or Facebook page. Details regarding upcoming courses and supervised sailing will be posted both on our website and Facebook page in due course
