Free sailing theory course

A series of free sailing theory lessons will take place at Skerries Sailing Club on four Tuesday nights in April.

Participants will learn how to hoist sails and rig a boat in an open-air demonstration. They will then learn how to safely sail a small boat in light winds as well as discovering how the weather and tides affect sailors. The course will also cover knots and ropework, mooring and anchoring as well as launching and recovering a sailing dinghy. The course will also provide an introduction to racing and cruising.

The course takes place over four consecutive Tuesdays on April 4, 11, 18,and 25 from 8pm to 10.15pm.

Places must be booked in advance by emailing Gerry Byrne atbyrnegerardf@eircom.net.
