Here are the dates of our winter training schedule.

The quality of the training is only ever as good as the quality of the coaches and we’re very fortunate to have an outstanding team.

We are delighted to welcome back Graeme Grant. Graeme did fantastic work with our sailors last winter as was very evident in their results throughout the year. In addition we are delighted to welcome Scott Flanagan. Scott represented Ireland in the London Olympics in the 470 class and has gone on to represent Great Britain and New Zealand.

The achievements of these two coaches are too long to list here.

Suffice it to say that if you don’t have a boat, it would be worth borrowing a boat to get this kind of exposure for your sailor this winter.

 January                14th – 15th              Lough Ree Yacht Club
February              11th – 12th              Lough Ree Yacht Club
March                   11th -12th               Lough Ree Yacht Club
  April                      8th -9th                Lough Ree Yacht Club

 Further details on the courses will be announced at a later date
