DSC Junior’s & Friday Bright Nights Sailor’s – Belfast trip by sailing yacht!
Another outdoor fun opportunity for the end of the 2023 sailing season, sailing on a yacht up Belfast lough, past the infamous Titanic slipway, to the marina at Abercorn Basin!
Maybe you’ve never been on a yacht? Now’s your chance to try it out with a sail up Belfast lough on Saturday 7th October. We’ll have limited parent places too, so whether your a ‘WOW Lady’ or a ‘Dad for Sail’ perhaps come along with your child for the day out – the train is right beside the marina for a return journey back to Bangor.
The young Sailor’s will need to be dropped off at Bangor Marina by 11 (at the reception) – where a DSC member will meet you, do a safety briefing and escort you to your assigned yacht, and collected again at Belfast Harbour Marina – beside the SSE arena in Belfast at approximately 6pm. Parent’s will be welcome to come aboard at either Bangor or Belfast for a visit.
Come prepared for an outdoor activity, wrap up well, hat & gloves, bring a waterproof coat and trousers, your buoyancy aid if you have one, and importantly a pair of non marking / white soled trainers or shoes – no need for wetsuits and the rest of your wet gear – you’ll not be in the water – but it’s going to be mid autumn by then, and it can be cold out on the sea!
You’ll need a packed lunch too, whatever you like to eat. We’ll probably have a supply of hot chocolate and ‘cup a soups’!
This event is only possible by the generosity of our members who have kindly offered to accommodate the young sailors of DSC on their own vessels. All boats will be crewed and skippered by suitably qualified and experienced people, we’d kindly ask that the young people are well behaved and respectful.
There is no cost, it’s free so come along and enjoy! Feel free to bring some treats for sharing amongst the rest of the crew on the trip!
Unfortunately we’ve limited space so strictly 1st come 1st serve basis. If the winter weather is kind we may even get another trip for those not able to make this one.
This event is fully booked - Sorry. Please check availability in an alternative session.
