Sligo Yacht Club
With a long history of running lots of regattas, both National and International, Sligo Yacht Club boasts some of Ireland’s most accessible waters. From April til October there is sailing five days a week, and the club is open to visitors and new members.
Set up in 1821, the Sligo Yacht Club is about 5 miles outside Sligo Town in Rosses Point. The Ladies Cup, as highlighted below, can be traced back to 1820 when the trophy was presented by the ladies of Sligo to encourage the fast sailing boats.
