Malahide Yacht Club is a Recognised Training Centre of Irish Sailing. We operate Irish Sailing’s Small Boat Sailing Scheme, National Powerboat Scheme, and also offer VHF, Navigation courses, First Aid, and ICC to name but a few. Keelboat Training for our young teens and adults are also on offer from our base in Malahide Marina.
We have recently been awarded the title of “IRISH SAILING TRAINING CENTRE OF THE YEAR EASTERN REGION” for 2019 in recognition of the high quality training provided by our instructors and volunteers to juniors and adults.
Our summer Junior Training programme runs from April to August each year and follows Irish Sailing’s Small Boat Sailing Scheme. We focus on offering expert instruction and a high ratio of instructors to trainees, but most importantly, we guarantee great fun in a safe and secure environment!
Fees vary for courses depending on the course chosen, and whether you are a member of the club or not. The Junior Training Program, course booking form, and details of Courses can be found by clicking on any of the links below:
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO COVID 19 restrictions we are re-drafting our Summer Program for Juniors – please contact the JAO firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Sailor Achievements: Emphasis at MYC is on having FUN in a SAFE and learning environment. Time on the water and attention to instruction will achieve results at different rates depending on the trainees, their commitment, aspirations and of course weather conditions. All trainees will be talked through their targets and achievements each week during the Junior Training Course.
N.B. In all cases, time on the water, outside of course hours will certainly reinforce learning and speed up skills acquisition. Club boats are available to members for Club sailing on Tuesday evenings, Saturday afternoons and Thursday evenings.
