The Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School will shortly be getting on the road with a travelling sailing and powerboat school to assist clubs right around the country. A programme of sailing and powerboat courses will be available to be delivered within clubs, with all equipment and personnel supplied. 

Included in the programmes are powerboat training, VHF, navigation and Sea Survival training as well as a range of sailing programmes. As many may know, the school has been heavily involved in providing marine services to film and television productions in Ireland, most notably the hit TV series “Vikings”. This allowed a build up an extensive fleet of vehicles, trailers and craft that can now be put to use supporting clubs right around the country with additional training opportunities.

"Included in the programmes are powerboat training, VHF, navigation and Sea Survival training as well as sailing"

Speaking about the concept, Chief Instructor Kenneth Rumball says "We’ve been privileged to welcome the wider sailing community to our school in Dun Laoghaire over the past 40 years. Recently we began to think that there would be merit in offering these services to club members at their own club?"

The school has produced a brochure detailing the services on offer and indicative pricing for these. Exact prices will vary depending on the exact services required, however, Kenneth Rumball encourages clubs to get in touch and is happy to discuss individual requirements in detail.
