One of the Irish sailing associations (the IRCA) have set up a series of training sessions around the country so that people can try out sailing on boats owned by their members. It’s a great chance to get out in the middle of Dublin Bay (or off any coast), and really experience the sea.
I took up sailing last summer and it’s incredible. Seriously, you can leave work in Dublin City Centre at 5.30pm and by 6.30pm be sailing with dolphins in Dublin Bay (photographic proof here). Then you come in as it gets dark and get
drunktalk about the sea with the rest of your crew. This is a great chance to try out the sport.
