Family Open Day
June 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Family Open Day – Saturday 1st June (bank holiday weekend) from 1pm to 4pm
The purpose of the Open Day is to encourage new member families and prospective member families to sample some of what the club has to offer for families.
The Royal St George Yacht Club has the largest junior section of the four waterfront Dun Laoghaire clubs. The summer programme spans from 4th June to 23rd August 2019 over six modules. The courses are designed for children from 5 years of age up to 16/17 years. There are courses to introduce children to sailing up to racing and advanced boat handling.
The course fees include lunch and run from 9.30 to 16.30 each day. (for children 5- 7 the course is half days 9.30 to 13.00)
Non-members can participate in a single sailing course provided a member of the club sponsors the child. Please contact the sailing office for further details.
For more details see the club website under the “Junior Section”
For the open day we will show children some of the boats our juniors sail and invite them onto the water with experienced sailors in a club boat.
The club has a fleet of RIB boats which it uses and also makes available to members for rent. We will bring families out in our RIBS to take a spin out of the harbour to watch the Dublin Bay Sailing Club fleet racing in action. Get up close to the racing fleet and get a taste of what club racing is all about.
The club has its own fleet of over 70 boats. Join us for a fun sail around the harbour in one of the club boats with experienced crew to guide you.
The club has recently launched our “Rowhouse” which contains a number of rowing machines. There are regular training and fitness classes held in the club led by Olympian, Niall O’Toole. Try out our rowing machines to see is this something for you. An absolutely excellent way of keeping fit.
Prefer to stay on dry land?
The RSGYC has wonderful facilities ashore. We have well appointed Members and Formal Bars opening onto a deck overlooking Dublin Bay. Our bay fronted dining room is a great room for our larger events and dinners and our library is a more intimate and atmospheric space for smaller meetings and dinners.
If you have your own sailing gear please bring it. If not, we have everything you need to get out on the water safely. Bring a change of clothes and a towel to dry off if planning to go on the water.
Food & Drink
The club will be serving its brunch/lunch menu from 1pm to 4pm on the day. Families can enjoy food and drink either in the Member/Formal Bar or on the forecourt if the weather is good.
In order to plan for numbers participating we ask families to register in advance by emailing email@example.com
