Our Adventure Sailing programme for teenagers is one of the most popular courses in the Irish Sailing Association’s Small Boat Sailing Scheme. These courses cater for experienced dinghy or keelboat sailors who want to have fun and develop their sailing skills in keelboats.

Our Learn to Sail courses for teenagers are run over five days from Monday to Friday. A five-day course allows a more relaxed approached to learning to sail than our adult courses which are completed in four half-day lessons.

We provide personal safety equipment and wet weather gear for use during the course.

J24 keelboats

All our sailing takes place in J24 keelboats. These 24 foot long (7.3m) boats are the world’s most popular keelboat class and are designed to be sailed by four to six people. To ensure that you get the most out of your Adventure Sailing course, each boat will have a qualified ISA Instructor with a maximum of five trainees.
