Residential Day Sailing, Heir Island Adventure and Weekend courses
Glenua has teamed up with Heir Island Sailing School to offer residential keelboat and dinghy courses based on Heir Island at Heir Island Sailing Centre. Heir Island is located near Baltimore in West Cork, Ireland. Perfectly located on the Wild Atlantic Way for a sailing break. Contact us for Sailing training, to refresh your skills or just to get on the water.
Glenua are offering a choice of dinghy and keelboat courses. A small single handed dinghy is a great way to learn sailing. In a dinghy, you are always in charge of the boat and its controls allowing to learn the fundamentals of sailing much more quickly.
Trainees may prefer our larger and more stable keelboat taining with a crew of four.
