Women On the Water – National Yacht Club April 2021

On behalf of the team Rosemary, Marie and Aisling, we would like to welcome all the Laser and Aero sailors to the National YC, both men and women of all abilities. We have a WhatsApp Group so if you are interested in sailing at the moment just have your name added to the group. There are regular posts on who is planning to sail, when and at what time we are launching! It is very casual at present as under the Covid-19 guidelines we can only sail separately but it has been a lot of fun and great to be on the water. When things open up we hope to arrange a back to Laser sailing, improving your Laser sailing skills including Aero’s coaching event’s so please keep an eye out for this and sign up when you see or get a notice from us.

In the meantime, please drop down to the Club and ask for any of the above if you have questions or want to join us for a sail.

To contact any of the team please write to
