Badoiri Lurgan

Bádoírí Lurgan is a registered non-profit community sailing club organisation. Our proceeds go into insurance, maintaining existing boats, running the community boatclub and mending sails.

The club is based in Spiddal, Co Galway (15 minute drive from Galway), and we have two standing sailing days Wednesday and Sunday, as tides allow, but members can also take out boats on other days if a qualified Skipper is available.

The club also takes part in Regattas over the summer time. The Hooker races form the basis of the cultural and social life in Connemara, the rules are supervised by the Galway Hooker Association. In 2009 we will take part in the Volvo traditional boat regatta on 1st June 2009 in Galway. Some of our club members are professional musicians and we organise events like visiting the Aran islands or a barbeque on the pier.

New members welcome.

We publish an annual Bádoírí Lurgan calendar with beautiful photos of Galway Hookers.

All returns will this year go to new sails for the Muírin.

If you are looking for a calendar please contact us. Calendars can also be sent to continental Europe, US and rest of the world.

Calendar 2010: out for Volvo Ocean Race 2010.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
