SUMMER SAILING COURSES 2015

Launching at FMOEC slip

Launching at FMOEC slip

Only a few weeks now until our first  dinghy sailing course.   These run weekly right through the summer and suit all ages and abilities from complete beginner to the more experienced sailor.  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, with our emphasis being on building up confidence and skills on the water.    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).

SUMMER SAILING COURSES

Surrounded and sheltered by over twenty islands and with a mild climate supported by the Gulf Stream, Schull is undoubtedly 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, with our emphasis being on building up confidence and skills on the water.    They run for five full days, Monday to Friday, however  we  can  also 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).
