It is not necessary to own your own boat to enjoy sailing at Killaloe Sailing Club as the club currently has a fleet of 3 RS Visions, a GP14 and a Laser 1, which can be used by any member, young or old, and booked in advance.These are available for members to hire during sailing sessions with safety boat cover. You will be asked to demonstrate a basic level of ability and apply to the relevant committee member to book a place on one of these boats in advance.
The club also has a limited supply of wetsuits and buoyancy aids of varying sizes, available to members. For those sailing regularly, we would recommend that members acquire their own wetsuits and buoyancy aids of a suitable size. We would also recommend that members wear old runners or booties when sailing. Sailing gloves are also recommended, but not essential. Also, ensure that warm layers and hat are worn where appropriate.
