We provide all essential gear, boats and buoyancy aids. Our instructors are qualified, highly experienced, and we operate within small ratios. We are fully insured, recognised by Irish Sailing and have an excellent safety record.

This course is aimed at anyone who has seen the sailboats sailing outside of Greystones harbour and wanted to become a part of it. We believe in working in small ratios to ensure your safety, learning of new skills and having fun. You can join the many adults and children who take part in Greystones Sailing. No experience necessary!

After successful completion of the course you will be a member of our club and have free access to sailboats for the rest of the summer, to enjoy racing every Wednesday evening and Saturdays.

The structure above allows our instructors a full weekend to ‘show you the ropes’ or if you’re returning to give you a refresher of the basics.

The evening sessions then allow you to ask questions and practice your new skills.

The final weekend you will participate in your own race with assistance from club members and instructors and then the Sunday to brush up on any grey areas.

Remember, the learning never truly stops. We hope you will have the confidence to join us every week for some club racing!


The cost of the course is €400. This will also include individual club membership until the end of 2019.
