Learn how to sail or improve on your sailing skills through the Adult Sail Training programme at the National Yacht Club



This year the Adult Sail Training programme will be a 6 week course, focussing on teaching you how to crew and helm a sailing boat in Dun Laoghaire harbour and out into Dublin Bay.

The National Yacht Club fleet of Club boats, suitable for learning how to sail as an Adult, are the RS Ventures, Wayfarers, Elliott 6s and J80s

This programme will give you a combination of skills and abilities in sailing, ranging from hands-on sailing out on the water, combined with small amounts of theory to help your understanding. You will be encouraged to participate in rigging the boat before sailing, launching, sailing as helm and crew, retrieving de-rigging and general care of the boat.

Mature Sailing Coaches / Instructors will be with you on your journey, prior to sailing, during sailing and after sailing.

As there will be a range of sailing experience amongst the attendees, the Instructors will work with each of you, to determine the best learning experience, so that you get the most out of your sessions.

Experienced volunteers from the membership of the club, will be available to support you, facilitating introductions to other members or to help you find a boat to sail on a more regular basis, if desired.

The National YC is an accredited sail training centre, under the governing body of Irish Sailing www.sailing.ie).
The course content is mostly aligned to the "Start Sailing" programme of the Small Boat Sailing Scheme.
Any attendee wishing to create or maintain their "Sailing Passport" will be facilitated through this and other courses. (more details - click here ).

Socialising is a large aspect to "apres" sailing. At the end of each session, we will have a de-brief in the Club, where snacks and drinks will be availalbe. This will give you the chance to talk about your experiences with the other attendees after sailing, to discuss what went well, to learn from waht didn't go as planned, while becoming familiar with the club and its surroundings, enabling you to make new friends for the future.

Sailing is a weather dependant activity. The instructors will endeavour to make the best use of the sessions, but may have to cancel and postpone an evening's sailing.
