Colin Matthews – Hon Sailing Secretary & Dinghy Fleet Captain

Our club has been well known for hosting very successful events over many years, recent years including the Ulster Laser Championships, the IDRA Northern Championship and the Fireball Ulster Championship and a Topper Traveller event with 40 boats, the RS Feva, 200 and 400 Northern Championships. This year we have the Irish Dinghy Racing Association's annual visit for the Northern Championship.


Club dinghy racing starts early April and runs until the end of December, with winter training in January, February and March, if required.


Cruiser racing is organised from the middle of April to the end of October.


Dinghy cruising is organised by John White - a more relaxed approach to boating, putting emphasis on the social side of sailing, and the appreciation of various sailing waters including beautiful Carlingford Lough and far beyond.


Our events are well known for great organisation and the club is famous for being welcoming to visitors.


Have a browse through our website and then contact us if you want to get involved in sailing. We would be more than happy to see you.
