Keelboat Training Weekend at HYC

Howth Yacht Club in conjunction with the J/24 Association are organising a keelboat training weekend on 24th & 25th March, for HYC Members and J24 Class sailors. The coaches are Cillian Dickson, Gordon Stirling and Sam O’Byrne.

To ensure the quality of training places will be limited.

The coaching topics for the weekend are:-

– Boat setup

– Sail Trim

– Boat Handling

– Improvement goals and self coaching tips

The cost of the course is €20/person. The course fee includes homemade soup and rolls for lunch each day.

Even if your boat isn’t going J24 crew are very welcome and will be facilitated onboard a HYC boat on a rotation system.

HYC would would like to acknowledge the support of ICRA and the Irish J24 Class Association in running this course. 

Further details can be found in the HYC website : HYC Keelboat Training
