TRALEE Sailing Club will be opening its doors this Sunday afternoon May 4 for free. The promotion called ‘Sail Spraoi, Sail Free’ is hoping to attract newcomers to the sport of sailing.

Sailing boats will be rigged up and powerboats, kayaks and coastal rowing boats will be ready to take you out on the water for a taster session anytime up to 5pm.

he said “People have a misconception that sailing is an expensive sport to take part in, but that’s not entirely true,” said Richard Hurley Commodore of Tralee Bay Sailing Club “It all depends on how much you want to spend, but it can be done cheaply.”

“Ireland are doing well now in sailing with Annalise Murphy’s gold in European championships last year and 4th finish at the Olympics the year previous,” he added.

‘Sail Spree’ will be taking place nationwide at clubs and training centres around the country. For more information check out
