Where to meet

All courses meet at Dun Laoghaire Marina at 9.30am on first day of course.  The finish times of the course each day will vary depending on destinations and weather conditions.

The Boat

This course is held on board our Elan 36 ‘Beaufort Venture.’ It is a 36-foot cruising yacht with 6 berths, full kitchen including stove and fridge, as well as toilet and shower facilities.

Sleeping arrangements & berthing port overnight 

We will aim to berth overnight in Dun Laoghaire each evening, so that you will be free to head off home and re-join the boat in the morning.

Alternatively, if you do not live locally you are welcome to stay on board. We do not supply sleeping bags or sheets for the bunks, we require clients to bring their own sleeping bag and pillow for all courses.

There will be one late evening sail, the day of which will be agreed with the Skipper at the beginning of the week.

Gear Provided

We provide foul weather waterproofs and lifejackets.
