Blessington Sailing Club is located on the shores of the 5600 acre Pollaphuca Reservoir, near Blessington, County Wicklow. The sheltered bay, with its two slips and sandy beach, faces east and is protected from the prevailing winds. The Clubhouse, built in 1988, has a recreational area, kitchen, and full changing and shower facilities. Dinghy sailing predominates in the Club. There are strong fleets of GP14”s and Catamarans, as well as Lasers and Mirrors. In recent years, we have a growing fleet of Toppers in which many of our younger members begin their sailing careers. There are also some small cruisers and day boats based at the Club. Blessington Sailing Club is family orientated and its location is safe and secure for younger family members.
Bray is a seaside resort a few miles South of Dublin. The sailing club overlooks the harbour, which is at the North end of the promenade. We cater for both cruisers and dinghies, with a full program of racing. The tide influences most of our activities, for the harbour dries at low water. The club is more than a hundred years old, and many former members have earned national and international reputations.
