Cara na Mara is a child focused approach to introducing sailing to children, allowing children to discover, explore and practice the skills and knowledge they will need as sailors while under the leadership and supervision of Irish Sailing qualified instructors and within an Irish Sailing recognised training centre. There is a strong emphasis on allowing the sailors to appreciate and enjoy the water and outdoor environment safely.

The skills and knowledge tie into the National School Curriculum.
