The RYA N Ireland WOW Festival is back at DSC in 2023 – 1 day event ~ booking available soon!
As part of the RYA NI’s Active Clubs Initiative, the DSC WOW programme is a fantastic opportunity for women to get out on the water and learn how to sail. WOW focuses on the social aspect of sailing rather than being competitive so it will be a great way to meet new people as well as having fun and keeping fit!
In 2016. Donaghadee Sailing Club were the first Club to offer the WOW programme, as part of the RYA NI’s Active Clubs Initiative. Our courses are led by a female instructor and can be run in a variety of boats, varying from the very stable Laser Stratos keel boats to singlehanders.
After a warm shower in our modern clubhouse facilities, participants are encouraged to retire to the Clubhouse bar for a well-deserved coffee or a drink. Here, you can admire the views over the sea and hear all about the benefits of being a member of Donaghadee Sailing Club.
Each course comprises of 7 hour activity day with numerous water based sessions and costs £40 – £60.
A number of course dates are available during the summer.
