In the club there are about 12 yacht over 9 metres, eight in the 7-9 metre range and about ten active mermaids plus other dinghies. We race every Wednesday evening during the summer months and on Sundays in September as well as some annual weekend events. In all there are just over 130 members. Our facilities include a modern clubhouse with bar, dance floor, toilets and showers. We have a pontoon which can accommodate approximately eight visiting boats, four club boats, the club crashboat and 12 dinghies. All other boats are kept on swinging moorings on the east side of Foynes island. Additionally there is a wintering compound for 30 yachts and a launching slip.
