Learn Sailing from the best!
Dunmore East is traditionally known as an excellent place to ‘learn the ropes’ of Sailing.
At Dunmore Adventure we hold the highest qualification in sail training, and offer sail training courses from complete beginner to professional level. Our courses are recognized by the Irish Sailing Association using the Small Boat Sailing Scheme.
The different levels go as follows:
ISA CERTIFICATE COURSES (All prices include ISA log books)
Duration: 2 days or five days
Never sailed before or have done one or two sessions and would like to learn more? Then this is the course for you. Start Sailing courses run over five days and give you a tremendous opportunity to learn new skills, putting them into action in our fleet of Topaz Dinghies.
Duration: 5 days
Having picked up the basic skills on a Start Sailing course, you are now ready to expand your horizons. During this course, we concentrate on boat handling and seamanship skills. By the end of the course, you should be confident to helm your own dinghy in moderate wind strengths.
Duration: 5 days
Week one of a two week course!
If you have got to grips with basic skills in light-moderate winds and now want to move on and develop your boat handling, seamanship and confidence, this course is ideal. Plenty of time spent on practical hands-on sailing. We will also introduce you to the ultimate rush in the Topaz Omega and have you hanging from a trapeze by the end of the week. We will also cover all relevant theory such as basic navigation, tides, safety and weather.
Duration: 5 Days
Part 2 of this Improving skills course will get you back up to scratch and ready to take on new intermediate skills!
Need to brush up on a particular sailing skill, or prefer to learn with the undivided attention of one of our expert instructors or coaches? Our private sailing sessions may be just the thing you need. As we provide courses up to senior instructor level, we can go through any dinghy skills you require, from basic to advanced level. This is a great session for those who are going for assessment and need a further push to improve or tweak their skills.
