Love the Water this Summer with Ballyholme Yacht Club
RYA Push the Boat Out is back at Ballyholme Yacht Club on Saturday 26th May 2018. If you have never tried sailing before or want to try a different type of dinghy or boat, enrol online and come down and have a go.
Our RYA Youth courses are already filling up. Courses run from Monday to Friday with 3 levels aimed at beginners, improvers and those who want to learn to race. Lots of fun and craic guaranteed. You can do all three together or spaced throughout the summer.
We have lots of Adult courses this summer – at present all are planned over weekends during May, June, July and August. Level 1 Beginner leads to Level 2 Improver and onto Level 3 and Start Racing. We also offer Private Lessons with one of our RYA instructors for those who can’t commit to a full weekend or prefer to learn on a one-to-one basis at a time of their choice.
We are running a series of introduction to sailing courses for ladies, the first of which is starting on Tuesday, May 1st. No prior experience is necessary and all the gear is provided by the club. You will learn the basics of sailing, in a relaxed, friendly environment over 4 consecutive Tuesdays. Register here
