Junior Sailing

Our Saturday Sailing  & Kayaking Sessions at Whitepoint Dinghy Park are a great fun way to involve kids and teens (from age 8) in sailing and kayaking.

We also run Summer Camps in June, July and August.

All levels are catered to, from beginners to advanced. As kids progress, they will have the opportunity to participate in club dinghy events and race with other clubs in the harbour too. It’s a great way to make new friends and gain a love of the water. Sailing and kayaking are sports that will stay with kids for the rest of their lives.

‘Saturday Sessions‘ run from the beginning of May right through until the end of September.  All are run by qualified sailing instructors, certified by Irish Sailing – the governing body for sailing in Ireland.

We provide all the equipment kids will need – boats, wetsuits, safety gear etc. Bring booties or old runners, a drink, lunch / snack….and a big smile of course!
