Junior & Youth Sailing at MYC

Dinghy Sailing:  The Broadmeadows Estuary is an ideal location to learn the skill of sailing and enjoy what is ‘a sport for life’. Malahide Yacht Club has a proud tradition of introducing young people to the joys of sailing and some of Ireland’s best sailors learnt the basics on the Broadmeadows.  Watching youngsters grow in confidence as they master the art of sailing is one of the great rewards for the staff at MYC.   Our summer courses will entertain, challenge and stimulate your children as they learn how to master a sailing dinghy afloat – and have fun along the way!

We provide all the essential gear for most levels/courses – boats and buoyancy aids.  In addition our instructors are highly experienced and all IS qualified; we maintain a strict ratio of instructors to participants:  1 Instructor and 1 Asst. to 6 sailors on all courses!  We have a fabulous clubhouse with modern facilities, underfloor heating, whiteboards, teaching aids, including a well-equipped kitchen, spacious areas for rigging demos etc.   We are fully insured, and are affiliated to the Irish Sailing Organisation.  We have an excellent safety record and pride ourselves on our superb reputation.
