Club and Bar Closed

Dear Members,

In light of the Government’s announcement this morning and their recommendations in order to curb the spread of Covid 19, The Committee have taken the decision to close the Club and Bar with immediate effect until 29th March.

This decision has been made taking into account the many groups and ages using the Club, and also with our vulnerable members in mind, to whom we have a duty of care.

The closure will be reviewed after this period of time.

Look after each other and follow the health guidelines.

Junior Sailing Course Induction Evenings

Junior Sailing Course Induction Evenings

This year we are holding two induction evenings in the club the first ‪on Sunday 16th June‬ & the second ‪on Sunday 14th July‬ both ‪at 6pm‬ for all those enrolled on junior courses this Summer. 

Please feel free to attend either evening, however if your sailor is enrolled on our later courses ‪from 15th July‬ onwards, it might suit you better to attend ‪the 14th July evening‬. 

It very important that you and your sailor attend one of these induction evenings before their course commences. We will outline what kit you will need to have for the course, what is involved in the courses, some safety guidelines and particularly what to expect if it is your first time involved.

These evenings are a great opportunity to meet the team, other parents & trainees and to have a chat over a drink as the bar will be open too.

Ann Rountree R.I.P.

It is with sadness that we post the news that Ann Rountree passed away while on holidays in Canary Islands.

Ann and Fred were members of Wicklow sailing club for many years.  Ann was also a loyal, reliable, and hard-working supporter of Wicklow RNLI and ran the shop on the quay for 20 years. Despite having travelled with dialysis over 35 years she still turned up to help out at all the RNLI events.

Our deepest sympathy goes to her loving husband Fred, her daughters Kate and Shireen, her grandchildren Lydia, Jonah, Jessica, Nathan, Eliza and Brian and extended family.

Arrangements for Ann’s funeral can be found on RIP.ie.
