Donaghadee Sailing Club offers a wide variety of social events appealing to all ages, from live music, quizzes, talks, BBQ’s and much more. The social committee is always looking for new ideas and suggestions of events our members would be interested in. Our junior members are welcome to join in to most events, and are allowed to remain in the bar area until 10pm. After this the balcony room is available for them, where there is a TV, music and a Wii with a selection of games.
The Club has a closed group Facebook page which publishes timely information on events and updates such as if sailing is cancelled due to weather conditions. It also provides highlights, including photographs, from recent events and welcomes members comments. There is also an open FaceBook page for the general public, which is used to advertise open events at the Club.
Unfortunately the bar and clubhouse are currently closed due to the NI Executive Covid – 19 restrictions.
The Club bar is open to coincide with summer sailing on Wednesday and Friday nights and on Sunday afternoons/evenings. Shorten opening hours apply during the winter period (see below).
Bar opening times:
|Summer (May to October)||7.30pm – 11.00pm||7.30pm – 11.00pm||4.00pm to 10.00pm|
|Winder (October to May)||8.30pm – 11.00pm||8.30pm – 11.00pm||4.00pm to 8.00pm|
Juniors & SU18 are allowed in the Bar area until 10.00pm with their parents / responsible adult.
As with the rest of the Club, the bar is manned by volunteers who do bar duty once a month. It is a great way of meeting and getting to know other members and not very onerous, so why not give it a try and give your Club a helping hand? You will be on duty with an experienced person who will teach you the ropes. Discuss it with the bar manager, Paul (07546 291750) or anyone who does the bar to find out more..
