You can enrol in a summer dinghy course at 9 years of age. On Wednesday in fun sailing you can go in a dinghy with a friend or family. You can go as a guest even if you are not a member. You must fill out a guest form.

Always wear your buoyancy aid.

You need a wet suit - a long one will keep you warm; underneath wear a rash vest; all should fit you neatly; sailing boots, sailing socks will keep you warm; a cag will reduce the effect of the wind. Never forget your buoyancy aid.

TAGS: wet suit

A change of clothes; always bring something warm - if you capsize in the water it can be cold; you will need a fleece and track suit bottoms even on a fine day. Sun protection is necessary even when it is not sunny; the wind out on the water can be harsher than you realise.

TAGS: capsize

You will come ashore for lunch unless there is a day sail. Then you will be told beforehand. It is important that you are well hydrated, so plenty of fluids.

The more commonly used dinghies are Topaz, Topper, and Laser

If you can sail off Courtown beach you can sail anywhere; the dinghies are launched and recovered off the beach. It takes time especially if conditions are unfavourable; thats where help is needed; during the course  the instructors and other sailors will help but on Sunday and Wednesday parents are needed on the beach; as they see a sailor coming towards the shore they read the sail number and get the launching trolley for you. Your Mum or Dad will be there to greet you with your trolley.

For a small fee you can store your dinghy in the boatyard. You will be allocated a space.

Most sailors take them home with them but if you wish, for a fee you can leave it in the boatyard during the winter season.
