WOW-WE 2024

Are you a woman looking to get into sailing or already taking part?

Fancy getting on the water in a fun, friendly and safe environment with likeminded women?

Donaghadee Sailing Club’s Women on Water on Wednesday Evenings (WOW-WE) encourages ladies to enjoy water related activities safely. There is more than just sailing on offer! Sailing dinghies and ribs will be available every session. We can arrange paddleboarding sessions or a snorkelling session on request. There may also be an opportunity to experience keelboat sailing. Wetsuits and buoyancy aids can be provided.

We are a mixed ability group, from total beginner to round the world sailors. Our common aim is to encourage, support and help each other on the water, whilst also having a giggle and gossip.

WOW-WE activities take place on Wednesday evenings at 19:00 from May 15th through to the end of the summer or when the nights get too short. We’ve created a 4 week introductory session, so 4 consecutive weeks weather permitting*.  The cost for Non Members of DSC is £35, this can be deducted from a membership application if you would like to continue after the 4 weeks!

WOW-We Launch – May 1st 20:00 – anyone is welcome to come along and find out what its all about – join us  in the club for bubbles & nibbles . Please email sailing@donaghadeesc.co.uk to RSVP

Session 1: 15 May – 5 June
Session 2: 12 June – 3 July
Session 3: 10 July – 31 July
Session 4: 7 August – 28 August

*  If the weather prohibits sailing one evening we will endeavour to carry your time over to the following session, space permitting.

Although all Donaghadee SC members can take part in the 4 week sessions free of charge – social members would be required to upgrade to a sailing member after the free 4 week sessions if they wished to continue on the water on a regular basis.

  • On the water for 7.30pm so arrive early perhaps an hour before your 1st session ~ 6 30pm to allow time to get ready, try on equipment etc, and half an hour thereafter.
  • Usually on water for an hour, or more if the weather is nice and the gossip good.
  • Join us for a cold beverage or a cup of tea in the clubhouse bar after a warm shower.
  • Swapping type of activity or sailing boat type during sessions – we can be flexible, if it really doesn’t suit.
  • Anyone needing wet gear, should request what they need when booking, ie wetsuit (don’t worry we’ll all be wearing them on a dinghy, but not needed on the bigger boats).

Thanks, The DSC WOW-WE Team 😉
