Did you ever dream of sailing in the open sea, crashing through waves as you steer your craft with the wind in your face? Whether you enjoy exhilarating challenges or just like to float around in the sun, the beauty of sailing is that there are days for everybody. Sailing is a pastime which lasts for life. From age seven to 70, once you experience the feeling you will never let it go.
Galway Bay Sailing Club has been introducing adults to sailing for more than 10 years and its training course will give you the spills and thrills you have been looking for. You will understand the basic theory of sailing by learning about boat setup, winds, tides, and safety. You will sail on both small two handed dinghies and an ocean going yacht.
All wet gear will be provided including wetsuit and buoyancy aid. If you cannot swim it is not a problem as expert instructors will be watching and ensuring your safety at all times. Other adults who have completed this course have raced in regattas throughout Ireland, travelled to the Mediterranean and sailed on charter yachts. Some just enjoy going to the club on fine days and go out for a sail around Galway Bay. So if you enjoyed watching those colourful sails on Galway Bay or wondered what it would be like to sail like Volvo ocean racers, you can now experience it for yourself in a safe, fun, environment right on your doorstep.
