Cruising Group

My name is Willie Kearney and I am the new Cruising Club Captain. We are an active Cruising Group within Howth Yacht Club and have regular internal presentations as part of our regular meetings. Should you wish to join our Cruising Club Group and our information circulation list, please contact me at wkearney100@gmail.com or Ph.No.0872340245

We welcome all Yacht and Motorboat owners, crew and interested members. New members of all ages are welcome. 

 
Our Mission Statement is as follows:
 
“To share our love and knowledge of cruising and make it more enjoyable and safer to all our members”
 
We have over 140 members and meet regularly (approx. once a month) during the winter months, to share our experiences. We also as a Cruising Group have an Annual Prize Giving Dinner with a large number of competitions for the best Annual Logs and Voyage Photographs. Five trophies in total to be won each year. The Cruising Group also organises a Start of Season Breakfast (usually in April) with a line throwing competition and award a special Asgard Trophy, followed by the first cruise of the season. Cruises to East Coast harbours, Wales and Scotland are also planned. Short notice cruises taking advantage of spells of good weather and tide are undertaken during the sailing season. These short notice cruises are very popular and are affection ally termed "Armadas".
