Only a few weeks now until our Summer Sailing courses begin and we are looking forward to welcoming new and returning sailors. We currently have places on all courses.
Although the majority of our sailors are children and teenagers we usually have a few adults of different levels on all weeks.

Launching their boats
Setting sail from the island after a picnic lunch – one of the highlights of our five day sailing course
And if we may be so bold as to sing our own praises… a few quotes from our sailors and their families from last year:
“I loved going to Da Island!” “Pirates and Boating and sailing races – it was so fun” “Meeting new people was definitely the best”
“All staff were excellent and most helpful and welcoming”
“Key is flexibility aspects”"
“All the people we met were easy to approach, good info and happy for them to look after our kids”
“Best sailing school I have seen”

2016 POWERBOAT INFORMATION AND BOOKING FORM
The FMOEC are hosting training camps for the following classes:
420, Laser and Topper, beginning Saturday 13th Feb until Friday 19th.
We look forward to welcoming around 100 sailors, their coaches and families to Schull.
Surrounded and sheltered by over twenty islands and with a mild climate supported by the Gulf Stream, Schull is renowned for being one of the best sailing areas in Ireland.
Our Dinghy Sailing Courses run weekly right through the summer and suit all ages and abilities from complete beginner to those looking to build up their skills on the water. We usually say minimum age of eight years, however we have had some very capable and enthusiastic “almost eights” in the past….
The courses are based on the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) 5 Level Scheme and are taught by experienced and qualified instructors in a safe and fun environment. They run for five full days, Monday to Friday, however we can be pretty flexible if your time in Schull is limited and it’s difficult to commit to a full course ( although we would usually recommend a minimum of two days).
