Commodores Welcome

Dear member and also visitor to our website,richards imports 699

We hope your visit to our website is enticing you to come sailing in Dunmore East. Waterford Harbour Sailing Club started as a community sailing club in 1934. From then onwards it has grown to its current size with ample of facilities for all members

Last year we developed with lots of new members and our club saw also some long lost members returning; sometimes with their now own young family. With lots of activities on and off the water we tried to make everybody feel at home in our new clubhouse

Over the last 2 years we have branched out into the community with School sailing for primary schools, Women on the Water, and a cooperation with the RNLI in fundraising etc. We are in reality finding our roots back from where we started over 80 years ago

Our offering of sailing is from the very young to adult beginner sailor. Our Wayfarers are particular popular with the mature sailors that thought they could never learn to sail anymore…. By popular demand the Sealegs, Sailing Buddies,has now got an addition of a new group the cool cadets. All these groups are geared for specific age groups to learn to sail whilst playing.

This year we will offer

  • Family sailing

  • Adult Sailing lessons

  • Cruiser sailing and racing (Crew wanted)

  • Laser and dinghy racing

  • Junior sailing courses (Lots and all levels)

  • Social activities

  • Rib Trips

  • Development squad

The Laser & dinghy group was extremely popular last year and if you have a Laser in the shed; take it out and try WHSC; They are a friendly bunch on the water.  Our foundations for the future are being built by the family sailing on Saturdays, the little children from the age of 5 years are having great fun on the water and learning to sail whilst playing.  All and all there is a lot on offer this year and after the sailing you can enjoy our clubhouse and terrace with spectacular views. This year again we will be hosting some social events.

Lots of information will be provided via our website with weekly updates and Facebook and Twitter Follow us !! We can always use pictures and stories to share with our other members and future members

There is much sailing for everybody available at WHSC this ensures that your membership is worth every cent. We are a welcoming sailing club in Dunmore and we hope you will come and check us out in 2018, just walk into the door.

Our membership fees for 2018 have been kept at the very competitive level as last year to ensure you get as much pleasure out of your money as possible. And of course we have the special new members rates.

We are looking forward to seeing many new and old friends in Dunmore East both on and off the water
