Most watersports in one place, Sailing, Kayaks, powerboating, skiing. We are a small sailing Club that welcomes visitors during the sailing season, people that come to us can learn to sail/improve their skill or take a cruise along our very scenic coast. Island hopping camping trips in addition to the annual Summer Camp make a very busy Summer, we have a range of sailing Dinghies but lean towards catamarans.

Seamus is an excellent teacher, the views are out of this world and the sheltered bay makes this a wonderfully safe place to learn how to sail. I found there to be no pretentiousness, just a welcoming group of people who made us feel like...More
