2019 Summer Courses for kids - book now!
07 December 2018
We have been busy planning our 2019 programme for what we hope will be another exciting sailing season at Howth Yacht Club. Some of you may have seen or heard the name Quest Howth around our club. Quest Howth is a brand name that we have established to help market all our junior and adult sailing courses as well as powerboat training and shore based courses. Through this initiative we hope to encourage more people of all ages to experience sailing and enjoy their time in Howth Yacht Club as much as we do.
We remain committed to ensuring that your family and friends receive the highest standard of training and enjoy their experience at the club. You will now find all the information on our 2019 Courses here. These courses are only open to existing members of HYC to book and will not be open to non-members until February 2019. You can download our application form (also attached) and send it to us or call in and we will help you to register for your choice of course(s).
As a parent/guardian of a Junior Member of Howth Yacht Club you can avail of priority booking as well as discounts rates on all our sailing courses. If your child is not a member, why not consider joining for next year?
You can now buy Quest Howth Vouchers online here or in the HYC Office. Vouchers can be used to pay for all training courses and HYC membership.

If your child is already a member you can use the vouchers towards paying for their courses.
