uSail Introduction to Laser Sailing

The George is running a basic introduction to the ILCA ”laser” dinghy sailing course, with the aim being that you progress into the Adult Laser kindergarten, which is the hottest group in Dún Laoghaire currently. No boats required as we have a limited number available from the Club to use.

We will be running sessions in six-week blocks where we will cover everything from;

  • Rigging
  • Launching & Recovering
  • Sailing in range
  • Develop boat handling skills
  • Gain wind awareness
  • Develop confidence within the Laser

After six weeks, the aim is to gain experience in the Laser while giving you the tools needed to further your sailing within the Laser Kindergarten group who are renowned for the craic afloat and ashore.

When:   

Courses will take place:

Monday evenings 6-9 pm

Wednesday evenings 6-9 pm

There will be limited spots on both days (you may sign up for either or both!) so it will be first come first served.  The plan is to start with Laser 4.7 rigs, maximum of 4 boats and 6 sailors so that sailors can switch between boats and the support rib. Sailors can drop in and out of sessions subject to availabilty. 

Gear Required:

A wetsuit or similar gear that will keep you warm while afloat and/ or in the water (great fun!), and a buoyancy aid. Runners or similar type footwear that you can get wet are also required.

Cost:  €60 p/ session which includes use of Club Laser.
