2022 Try Sailing

We are delighted to open the sign-ups for the 2022 Try Sailing programme.

The RCYC try-sailing program is run in conjunction with the Irish Sailing try-sailing initiative to get people sailing and on the water.

This year, throughout the months of August and September, we welcome non-members to our club to try sailing.

Dates have not yet been finalised, but it is envisaged that the sessions will occur as follows:

Monday evenings for Primary school aged kids who will integrate to our Cadet club.

Sunday mornings for Secondary school aged kids who will integrate to the Junior Sailing Academy.

For more information on the Cadet Club or Junior Sailing Academy, see the Youth Pathway.

Please bring your own buoyancy aid and wetsuit or equivalent for going afloat.

This initiative is targetted to non-members, current members should follow the Youth Pathway programs.

Non Members: There will a €75 charge for 3 try-sailing sessions which will be deducted from future membership fees should you decide to join later in the year. The charge will apply once a confirmed slot has been allocated to the sailor.
