Tuesday 6.30pm–9pm (adults and more experienced sailors)
Atlantic sailing club is open to all ages: Current members ranging from 10 years old -70 years old.
Activities on the water vary depending on the weather:
On a very windy day, boats stay close to the shore practicing manoevers and racing which is great for people learning how to sail and the experienced sailors alike.
On calmer days, the boats go further afield to Valentia harbour and Beginish Island, often stopping on the island for a brief stroll or rest.
Young or old, experienced or beginner - the ASC caters for all with friendly patient members that are willing to teach newcomers a few skills.
You will need:
Wetsuit, windbreaker jacket, buoyancy aid, neoprene boots or old runners, sunscreen, hat.
