Boating course at Sallynoggin College
Sailing and boating is more accessible than ever before, especially when local educational establishments are running courses in the skill. Sallynoggin College of Further Education in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, are doing a ten-week Autumn night class: Introduction to Boating and Basic Seamanship, which covers boating lingo, weather, tides, safety, equipment, passage planning, marine engine maintenance, charts basic navigation, and VHF operation protocol.

Once the course is completed, students take a full day trip on a sailing boat or motor cruiser, travelling from Dun Laoghaire to Skerries. This puts them through their paces and assesses their proficiencies. The course fee is 90 euro (not including day trip), and it's being run from 7pm to 9pm beginning on tuesday the 6th of October. Contact the College for further information - tel: 01 285 2997, fax 01 284 8437, email: [email protected]

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.
