Arklow Sailing Club
Arklow Sailing Club’s Try Sailing program, 2022
We are inviting people over 18 years of age to come out sailing with us in June (weather permitting). The aim of this program is to give sailing a go and see if you like it. There is no certification awarded for this but you will gain some experience and hopefully become a competent crew member.
Time & Location
21 Jun 2022, 18:30 – 19:30
Arklow Sailing Club, N Quay, Ferrybank, Arklow, Co. Wicklow, Ireland
About the Event
If you decide sailing is for you we can pair you up with some of our yachts so you can take part in our racing program with the view to becoming a club member. The club has a racing program which has events on each Wednesday evening and also on Saturday morning/afternoon but more about that later...
The plan is to meet at the sailing club on the north quay each Tuesday evening in June at around 6.30pm. We will divide you up and assign you onto a boat for that evening. We expect to be out on the water for approx. 1 hour. Bring some clothes that you might wear if you were going for a walk in the rain! ( No high heels)
Some items you will learn include:
- Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
- Boat preparation
- Docking and undocking
- Using the winches
- Hoisting sails
- Trimming sails
- Man Over Board manoeuvre (MOB)
- Race Start tactics.
- General crew duties.
Looking forward to seeing you out on the water.
