Roll on sailing in 2020, says Wicklow Sailing Club as it welcomed a number of very happy sailors out on the water this past Saturday 13 June with the recent further relaxing of coronavirus restrictions.

In its latest newsletter, the club reminded members that its clubhouse remains closed for the moment, however cruisers are back on the water and dinghy racing will have an amended format.

Thursday and Saturday club sailing for dinghies will only be open to a maximum of 30 sailors that can recover and sail on their own. Families can sail with younger sailors so long as they can all recover safely.

Mixed households may sail but again at their own risk and must have someone capable of full recovery and being able to return to shore — which means there must be a Level 3 or above sailor at all times in a boat.

Further details of changes and restrictions can be found in the Wicklow Sailing Club newsletter HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
