Howth Yacht Club is stressing its two day coaching on the eve of the Irish Cruiser Racing Association (ICRA) National Championships, is not just for club members. In association with UK McWilliam Sailmakers and ICRA, the north Dublin club is running two days of coaching for yachts and their crews on May 20 and 21.

Skippers and crews eager to improve their skills – and tune–up – for the season ahead are invited to partake in what will be 'two brilliant days of sailing'.

The racing season is just around the corner with the ICRA Nationals taking place in early June at Royal Cork Yacht Club.

Des McWilliam and Graham Curran of UK Sailmakers will be doing on the water coaching at HYC on both days followed by video debriefs. 

'This is NOT exclusively for customers of UK Sailmakers, you are invited to train no matter who supplies your sail wardrobe', HYC's Ross McDonald told Afloat.ie

Entries are strictly limited to 10 per day for a 5:1 coaching ratio.

Here are some great instructional videos to watch in the meantime from UK Sailmakers: Instructional videos

The entry fee options are HYC Member (€95.00) and Non Member (€125.00). You can enter your boat online here
