Sailing in Dublin (SID) Club

COVID-19 Normal sailing activities have resumed

SID is a small friendly club based in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. We offer you the opportunity to sail regularly without having to buy a boat. The club provides a fleet of dinghies (1 and 2 person boats) and three yachts (max 7 persons) for sailing activities and competitions at a very low membership fee.

We welcome all adults who wish to enjoy sailing in Dublin Bay and beyond.

If you are a beginner, you can sail on our Beneteau-31.7 and Ruffian-23 keelboats with experienced crew to build up your sailing skills and knowledge. If you have some sailing experience, you can spend more time on the water dinghy sailing, on our cruising boat Silver Wind, or on our keelboats where you can take part in all aspects of sailing, from crewing to helming to navigation. SID gives you the opportunity to sail with more experienced sailors before attending further training courses, or perhaps committing yourself to buying a boat.

Along with daysails and cruises, all members are encouraged to take part in races and regattas held in Dun Laoghaire during the summer months and the 'frostbite' series held on Sundays during the winter. Our members take part in all aspects of running and organising the club. Boats, rescue cover and safety equipment are provided. Single guest sails with the club are available.

The club has been providing sailing opportunities to novice, intermediate and experienced sailors in Dun Laoghaire since 1984.
