The Royal Irish Yacht Club runs a very successful Beginner and Advance Adult Sailing Programme.
The Adult Sailing courses in the programme are available to both RIYC members and non-members and are designed for people who are interested in:

•    learning about sailing, boat rigging, wind direction, points of sale, knots etc. 
•    advancing their knowledge of sailing
•    becoming a member of the Club. 

Our 2024 Adult Sailing programme is now open for bookings. This is an excellent to introduce adults to sailing and to the club. If you have any family or friends who you think would be interested please pass on the following details to them.
We use our fleet of "1720" Sportsboats, a 5 man keelboat that cannot capsize making it an ideal safe way of learning the sport we love. On completion of the course we expect participent will be competent to crew on members yachts in Dublin bay.
On completion of the course we invite participants to join us for an evening of fine food and wine in our dining room to celebrate their achievement.  This is included in the cost of the course. 
We have 3 x  6 Session courses available this summer, all held on a Tuesday evening from 1800 hrs to 2000 hrs 
Course 1 - 16th April - 21st May 2024
Course 2 -  4th June - 9th July 2024
