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.
