Squirts and Tigers Sunday’s Program- come on down and join in the fun!

Dust off the wetsuits, break out the sunnies and shake off the snow blues as Sea Squirts and Tigers are back! Immerse your children in our fun, friendly Sea Squirts & Tigers, Sunday sessions to give them a love of the sea and sailing, from an early stage.

2022 Season – Sundays starting in May

For those who have sailed with us over the last few years, you know the drill – for those joining us this year, here is the score;

Time: The Sunday Sessions will begin at 9.30am for one hour for Squirts, and 11am for Tigers. Sailors must be fully dressed in appropriate and most importantly warm sailing clothing and ready to go afloat by 9.25am and 10.55am.

Ages: 6 to 10 (no experience needed).

Cost: €20 Per Sailor p/ session

Boats: we use a combination of Oppies, 1720’s, Stand Up Paddleboards, RIBs, and kayaks dependant on the conditions. 

Objective: a fun introduction to sailing, sea and making friends at the Royal St George Y.C.

Required: wetsuit (full), life jacket and suitable foot and headwear – a cag or waterproof coat too. If you need a wetsuit to get your sailor going, contact the Sailing Office and we will be able to rent a Club suit for May. 

Always on: even in bad weather Sea Squirts and Tigers will run – indoor and non-sailing activities such as kayaking and SUPing will happen in place of sailing.

Frequency: the key to learning sailing and water skills is the frequency not the intensity of learning. Squirts and Tigers do not substitute a Summer Sailing course but compliment it perfectly by building confidence slowly and surely.

Our philosophy is all about giving your child a love of the sea and sailing while making friends in a fun environment. All the instructors are chosen because of their ability to connect with the kids and ensure learning in a fun /low-pressure environment.


We know, not another WhatsApp Group! But to help us keep you up to date please send your child’s name, your name and mobile number and we will add you to the WhatsApp group for the Sea Squirts & Tigers to keep you up-to-date. If you wish to join the group please contact 087 2590843.


Sea Squirts is run on 100% volunteer basis and if you can support us we would love your help. At our first Sunday morning, we can have a coffee and chat with the parents and share out the tasks.


Each month you will get a booking link for the forthcoming 4/5 Sundays of the month. You can book as many or as few Sundays as you like. IF YOU HAVEN’T BOOKED we will not be able to take your child sailing as we will have no waiver or proper contact details.

We look forward to meeting you again this year and to our Sea Squirts and Tigers having a brilliant season of fun, friendship and sailing.

Please be advised: There will be no refund/s issued for missed sessions. Payments are non-refundable after one month of registration date due, to the cancellation of courses in the event of bad weather.

Cost:  €20 Per Sailor p/ session
