Why Join?

Membership at Donaghadee Sailing Club allows you access to a range of facilities and welcomes you as part of our vibrant community. DSC has just undergone a major redevelopment and now boasts one of the finest sailing centres in Northern Ireland. If you are a sailor or watersports enthusiast of any type, then you will appreciate the new clean and modern changing facilities now available. We have on water rescue craft covering all of our sailing/canoeing sessions to ensure your safety. As a recognized RYA training centre DSC runs training courses throughout the year so you can gain RYA qualifications as you progress in your sport. If you are not a sailor then DSC is also for you. We have an active social calendar with a dedicated social committee organising events all year round. The club house has large multi-function rooms which provide a relaxing atmosphere ‘apres sailing’ where you can enjoy a drink, chat and revel in the impressive views of the harbour and Donaghadee Sound.
