Sailing is a very diverse sport and the UCD club welcomes sailors of all levels from beginners to expert. Those new to the sport are taught by qualified instructors, while those experienced sailors train in UCD’s own fleet of Firefly dinghies. Sailors have the opportunity to compete in University team racing events both around Ireland and abroad. The club is also a proud owner of a J80. Sailing is a sport built around teamwork and as a result long lasting friendships are formed among participants. UCD continues to be one of Ireland’s top sailing Universities with strong performances both at home and abroad.
