Where to Learn to Sail in Ireland Without Being A Member of a Yacht Club?

28th July 2014
Where to Learn to Sail in Ireland Without Being A Member of a Yacht Club?

#howtosail – This page is prompted by a suggestion by Dingle Sailing Club in County Kerry for a listing of places where you can learn to sail in Ireland without the need for club membership.

Making people aware of the opportunity to learn to sail without the need for boat ownership and/or club membership fees was highlighted by Afloat.ie's Tom MacSweeney as an important part of growing the sport of sailing. The point was clearly illustrated when MacSweeney was approached by a man who wanted his son to learn to sail in Cork but could not afford the relevant club membership fees.

If you offer learn to sail tuition in dinghies, keelboats, kitesurfers or windsurfers without the need for club membership fee please add your details in the comment box below:

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.
