Cruising

Our Sun Odyssey-35 "Silver Wind" and our Sigma-33 "Obsession" are available to members for cruises up to a week long. We organize many cruises throughout the year

  • A major ten week cruise each summer (with crew swaps)
  • Weeklong cruises on the Irish Sea
  • Three-day trips on long weekends
  • Two day trips to give inexperienced crew a taste of living onboard
For multi-week trips we swap crews at the end of each week.

We have previously sailed to...
  • Circumnavigation of Ireland
  • Western Isles of Scotland
  • Galway for the Volvo race
  • Kinsale for the Gathering
  • The Scilly Isles
  • North Wales & the Menai Straits
  • The Isle of Man
  • Most ports of the East Coast of Ireland

Each year we plan a full Summer program of cruising on our Sun Odyssey 35 "Silver Wind".
If demand for places is high then preference is given to those who have not been on any trip this year to date to ensure that everybody gets a fair chance.
We encourage all crew to take a full part in navigation and passage planning and welcome all proposals or suggestions for possible trips.

  • The boat must be thoroughly cleaned and re-fuelled on return.
  • There is a charge of e100 per night for the boat, for trips of two nights or over (e.g. this would be e20 each per night with five crew on board and will only apply to the second and subsequent nights the boat is away from Dun Laoghaire)
