Howth Sailing and Boating Club

Howth Sailing & Boating Club is situated on the East Pier of Howth Harbour in Dublin Ireland. You can find us on google earth by searching for 'Howth Sailing and Boating Club'. It consists of about 80 members.

Boats range from size 24ft to 33ft. There is also a 40ft steel homebuilt sailing cruiser.

Activites include racing on Wednesdays and weekends during the summer and members also do various cruises during the summer.

Two years ago we charted nine boats in Croatia and this year we went to Greece.
