Watersports – Sailing / Kayaking and Team Racing

Watersports begins this year on Friday the 15th of September (provided we have the numbers so please fill in this form to register interest etc thank you ) with a 7-week program, the program is for anyone who wants to learn or improve the art of sailing, kayaking, team racing and seeing the joys of being on the water.

We will be using the Royal Cork Yacht Clubs boats. Training is on every Friday for 7 weeks starting in 15th September concluding at midterm last evening 27th of October. It will begin after school from 1.30 to 4.30 with a crack team of local instructors/ Coaches. Meet in the Dinghy Center of the Royal Cork Yacht Club.

Each student who does not know how to sail is taught the basics of sailing but all will improve their skills on the water with team racing fun. 

Boats and lifejackets(buoyancy aids) are provided but warm gear that can get wet like a wetsuit is advisable. This program will cost €70 which works out at €10 per week, as 4th years are in Kilfinon for one of these weeks they would have 6 weeks at €60. please get this into the office or to Mr. McGalde in an envelope marked watersports with your name on it before the first Wednesday of the program.

We hope to get a teams together to sail in competitions, Munster's schools Team Racing championships at the end of March usually. Every student is welcome to join even if you can or can’t sail/ kayak.
