Free Sailing Sessions for Schools in the Carlingford Lough Catchment

The Loughs Agency has partnered with Carlingford Sail Training Centre to offer Sailing Tasters Sessions at the sailing club in Carlingford, County Louth.

The Loughs Agency aim is to offer an introduction to sailing to young people who may not, otherwise, experience this exhilarating sport.

This opportunity is being offered to post primary schools / colleges within the catchment of Carlingford Lough (and those drawing a sizable number of pupils from that area) as per the map below.
