Friday night sailing and new members:

New members are always welcome to the club and to facilitate this initiative a draft program of Friday night sailing is posted on the website homepage under “sailing information>adult sailing”. It is envisaged that boat owners will bring new members sailing and show them the ropes.


The water supply to the pontoon has been isolated for the winter and the piping and fittings drained to prevent a repeat of the frost damage and leaks which occurred last winter. Many thanks to Mr. Donal Walsh for carrying out the repairs last year and draining the system this year.
