    The Sailing club in Dunmore East are not at the races in any shape or form. Word on the street is a small group of people run this sailing club the way they wish, with no commercial business sense.It has been claimed the doors of the sailing Club open in Dunmore East on June 1st, and lights out end of August. You mention security in your comments above, but the fact the club have no full time staff members worries me when it comes to security. No doubt you will be charged for your dingy slot at the side of the club, however after they receive your money, it becomes your problem. I think all you have to do is look at the clubs next door neighbors success in the Adventure Centre open 10 months of the year entertaining all, and just finished a bumper year according to local news papers, states the fact that massive change is required in Waterford Harbour Sailing Club before it succeeds in any shape or form.

    Another place with problems, this time with keeping a dinghy or any sailboat on land during the season. It is a great pity that something is not done about providing a bit of security for the boats kept beside the Club on the 'hard'. If there was a decent, fenced Dinghy Park in or near the Club there would probably be a huge increase in membership, use of the Club, the Harbour, and the nearby eateries and bars. Dunmore E. has a unique aura and ambience and it's a great pity that nobody there seems to realis and develop that end of sailing a bit. It would NOT cost very much.
