GSC Junior Training

All GSC Training Courses are designed to offer tuition where instructor ratios are high and a maximum of two trainees per boat to optimize learning and experience on the water. The ISA maintain a high standard in all accredited training centres and in Greystones trainees are awarded certificates on the basis of ability rather than days spent on a course e.g. GSC ‘Level 4 graduates’ will have covered the ISA syllabus for the modules but in addition will be confident sailors in a Force 5.

Cara na Mara 2017

While our Junior Training Courses are limited to children of 10 years or above, we understand that the attraction of sailing starts at a much younger age. With that in mind, we’re running two courses under the ISA Cara na Mara programme that is designed for children between the ages of six and nine.

The Cara na Mara courses are being run on mornings and afternoons of the week beginning August 2. More info is available on the application form, which can be downloaded by pressing the button below.
