If you’ve never sailed before or want to improve your skills, CSBC would love to help you.

You can learn to sail at any age – we take new sailors from the age of 8 to over 80, learning to sail in some of the safest and best sailing waters in Ireland and the UK. We are a Recognised Training Centre and run a wide range of RYA courses.

CSBC is a members club but visitors are always very welcome and we are always looking for new members. We have a long pedigree in teaching sailing and hosting sailing events.

  • a hat / cap
  • gloves (3mm neoprene ones are a good idea) – not necessary for summer sailing
  • neoprene booties (with hot socks if you have them) or in summer old trainers you don’t mind getting wet are fine
