In addition to the regular courses run by the club (see left panel options), keep an eye out for the various options that Howth Yacht Club will be running including the Introduction to Sailing and Crew Skills courses. The next courses are advertised below and are also promoted via our social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter and our weekly Newsletter. The courses commence with a short explanatory session, followed by an introduction to your boat and skipper and then, after a sustaining lunch, you will go sailing and have the chance to steer and trim the sails. Those who have sailed before will do a more advanced session.
2017 course dates:
Other courses include Introduction to Racing and New Skipper modules which will be run on demand.
The course is open to members (€15) and non-members (€50).
In addition to the one day course above, the team are running a number of specialised training courses such as Man Overboard!, Refresher Boat Handling, ICC Preparation and Day and Night Passages. All information on these days is available on the navigation bar on the left of this page, or through firstname.lastname@example.org
'Skipper and Crew' training
HYC has courses available for boat owners who would like to polish their skippering skills and also for any sailor who would like to learn more about chart plotters, GPS and radar. These courses are tailor-made for small groups and will be scheduled as required.
