Howth Yacht Club is one of the best venues to sail and is a superb place to learn to sail dinghies, as evidenced by our current HYC superstars Eve, Rocco, Robert  and Ewan. The easy access to the race area coupled with the different variety of weather, sea state and tide off Howth ensures that sailors learn how to sail well in all conditions. We have Westerly winds with flat seas, Easterlies and big rollers,  tricky tidal variance, which make it great place to become a sailor who is comfortable at any venue.

Add to this the quality of our Race Management teams, the fabulous club facilities and we have a fantastic package to offer all dinghy sailors.
