Easter Sailing Course Instructors

Dear all dinghy & assistant instructors,


Can you please let me know you’re availability for an Easter Sailing Course, commencing on Monday 1st April 2013? This has proved a very popular course, therefore its vital that I obtain instructor availability as soon as possible. Please e-mail or call or text on 07739773809.


Kind regards,


AGM – 2013

The AGM is scheduled for 23rd of March at 4:00pm.

Please note a development meeting has been scheduled for Saturday 2nd March at 3:00pm to start rewriting the club development plan.

All members are welcome to come along and contribute


Six Nations 2013

We’ve made some upgrades to our system so we can now show the 6 nations live on the big screen in high definition from RTE.

Everyone’s welcome, so why not come along and watch the rugby and enjoy a drink from the bar.


Club Race Officer Course

Robin Gray, the RYA Regional Race Management Coordinator will be running a race officer course for club members on the 9th March from 09:00 to 14:30.

We are always looking for volunteers to help out with race officer duties so this is a great opportunity to learn the necessary skills.

We’d encourage as many people as possible to attend.

Senior Instructor

CSBC Sailing School are now taking applications for the position of Senior Sailing Instructor. Applications will be accepted up to and on 31st January 2013. Where necessary, interviews will be held following this date.

Turkey Race

Due the the windy weather and low turn out on the Sat 8th Dec, the turkey race has been postponed to this Saturday 15th December, 1.30pm sharp. Volunteers needed for rescue boat and OOD. Good prizes up for grabs for both seniors and juniors so get the boat out for one final time this year!


Racing will be followed by Santa’s arrival at 4pm for the kids (and young at heart).


A great club day all round

Dinghy Sailing

Saturday’s race was a cold affair, with a gentle breeze always threatening to strengthen. The two fifteens sailed best to the conditions with Kennedy and Serena taking first, followed by Tommy and Roland.

Following the race we had a productive meeting in front of the fire and discussed this years remaining fixtures and made plans for next season.


Three races are scheduled during December:


Turkey Race – Saturday 8th December

Warning Signal 13:25

This traditional race is a great opportunity to win a prize in time for Christmas.


      • 1st Prize : £40 Kearney’s Voucher
      • 2nd Prize: £20 Kearney’s Voucher


      • 1st Prize : £20 Cameron’s Voucher
      • 2nd Prize : £10 Cameron’s Voucher

Bar Race – Saturday 15th December

Warning Signal 13:25

This is the last competitive race of the season which is followed by a sailors party in the bar.

Christmas Fun Race – Friday 28th December

Warning Signal 12:55

The team pico relay race will make a return over the Christmas holidays. Four teams of seniors and juniors of all abilities will be drawn from a hat on the Friday morning. Nominations for the team captains are accepted now so get in touch!

The captains have two jobs;

1) Ensure we’ve got a big turnout

2) Sort out the team fancy dress costume. (The costume will be used as the relay baton so some careful consideration is required, a mankini is probably not a great idea)

Hot drinks followed in the bar with the presentation of lots of fun prizes.


The fun race will conclude this years dinghy racing, however we have big plans for next year. We aim to start the season on Saturday 16th March with a team racing series running each Saturday into spring. Plans for this are already under way and we’ll provide more updates over the next few months.
