This brand new initiative aims to bring new sailors into the fold and prepare them for the season ahead as crew members for GISC boats. 

Over 3 weekends, sailors will have the opportunity to learn and become familiar with our cruisers, while doing exercises and mini races. 

So, if you’re a young dinghy sailor who’d like to leap onto a cruiser, or a someone looking to join a crew,  this is a must for you.   Get in touch with Ian Scandrett for more info via  info@greatislandsailingclu.ie or by phone 086 803 26 06.
