crew needed

We’re looking for crew! Several of the club boats are currently experiencing a crew shortage and would be delighted to welcome new crew members aboard. Some sailing experience is preferred, no matter how long ago it was. Minimum age with us is 18 years old. We race around the cans every Wednesday evening throughout the summer and on Saturday later in the season when the nights are starting to draw in. So if you love the sea and would like to sail, stop letting life get in the way and give us a call on 083 8571625. If you’ve never sailed but would like to give it a try have a look at our Sail Training page here. We recommend you try their Competent Crew Course to get you started on big boat sailing

skippers needed

If we didn’t have skippers we wouldn’t have any boats, owner sailors are the life blood of our club. We’re always looking for new members to participate in Racing, Cruising, and Social events in the clubhouse throughout the winter months. We can accommodate boats from 20’ to 34’ on our moorings in the harbour. Access is via our Dinghies which are securely stored on the pier. On race nights we travel in style using a club tender to take us back and forth. With hundreds of years experience between them all and boats ranging in size from 20’ to 34’ there ‘s a lot of fun to be shared.

If you are living on Dublin’s Northside we can offer you advice on moorings, crewing and training. If you’ve never done a day skipper course you should contact MAST sail training today; and treat yourself to the confidence boost that only knowledge can bring. We recommend you call us for a chat and sign on for their Day Skipper Theory Course to get you started.
