Junior Summer Courses 2017 – Dates / Plans

The summer course dates for our two week ISA sailing courses in 2017 are as follows:
Course 1: Tues 6th – Fri 16th June
Course 2: Mon 19th – Fri 30th June
Course 3: 10- 21st July
Course 4: 24th July – 4th Aug
Course 5: 7-18th Aug

We will update around Easter time with specific clinics but we hope to run the full suite of ISA levels over each two week course (Start Sailing, Basic Skills, Improving Skills, Racing, Advanced Boat handling, Adventure, Kites and Wires)

NEW! : This year, we will also be offering a teenage introductory course in Course 1 or 2  where you will learn to sail with other teenagers in the ventures, wayfarers or 1720s.  This is ideal for new members or older siblings of some of our young sailors.

Please note there will not be any sailing course on the first week in July as the Volvo Dun Laoghaire week is July 6-9th
