Sailing & Powerboating Cork

SailCork and Covid procedures  We are delighted to be back afloat and to see some loyal past customers and new customers joining us for some clean, healthy fun and training afloat. 

In order to protect our Instructors, our customers and ourselves, we ask that you answer some questions on arrival followed by daily temperature checks. Hand sanitisers and sprays are stationed at various points ashore and on all boats. This information is saved on our specially designed App for traceability.   You are asked to bring your own sailing gear.  We will issue life jackets or buoyancy aids. If you wish to wear a mask, please bring one with you.  A constant reminder to wash hands.
