Winter Sailing Programme

Quest Howth – Discover Sailing promised a new sailing experience with plenty of après sailing socialising activities for all newcomers interested in starting sailing. To ensure this is a continuous one and that we keep all our Quest Howth participants engaged, we are launching a new Quest Howth Winter Sailing Programme. Some of the best sailing in Ireland takes place over the winter months especially up to December. Although temperatures do drop and with the right sailing gear, many a winter’s day sailing brings sunshine and good strong steady winds. Winter sailing is challenging but also exhilarating and rewarding. Lots of sailing lessons are learned in these challenging conditions making summer conditions a breeze. To run along side our on-the-water Quest Howth Winter Sailing Programme is a broad range of theory sailing courses on land. It’s a great time to brush up on navigation skills, VHF Radio, ICC and sailing theory. So sign-up to our newsletter to keep you up to date on all Quest Howth Winter Courses to come.
