All Aboard! Senior School Sailing Starting After Easter!

Head of Sport Gavin Maguire’s mighty realm extends over both land and sea:

Dear Parents,

For the last few years in conjunction with the INSS we have run a sailing club. The sailing club will run over 7 Saturdays after Easter. It is for all Senior School years and sailing abilities and has been a great success the last few years. The cost of the club is €140 for the 7 weeks.

Please pay on Easy Payments and print off and complete the booking/permission form which can be found here.  Please download and fill out the form and bring it in on the first day of the course.  

The sessions will run on the following dates:
1st session – Saturday 14th April (11:00 am – 2:00 pm)
2nd session- Saturday 21st April (11:00 am – 2:00 pm)
3rd Session – Saturday 28th April (11:00 am – 2:00 pm)

Parental Consent Form – see above
Sailing Gear… We will provide a buoyancy aid for you. Please note, we do not approve the use of ‘shortie’ style wetsuits on any of our courses as from experience we find they do not adequetley keep your child warm during the course. We can provide full length wetsuits if required.

Where to Go on the First Day…. We’re located on the West Pier. Landmarks close-by include The Purty Kitchen Seafood Restaurant and the Topaz Filling Station.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
