Galway City Sailing Club - Preseason Sessions

Preseason Thursday Evening Sessions

Hello fellow sailors and members of GCSC,

Sailing season 2018 is approaching fast and GCSC Committee and members are getting ready to be back sailing in Galway Bay.

Safety aspects are important for everybody and we have scheduled a series of pre-season briefing sessions to refresh your knowledge and to give you confidence in GCSC operational procedures.

The briefing sessions are great opportunities to meet fellow club members. You can find out more about our brand new fleet of sailing boats and you have opportunity to ask questions make recommendations and suggestions for training.

So why not come and refresh your knowledge and get ready sailing again?

You can find further details about our pre-season briefing on the document attached.

Looking forward to meeting you again

Kind Regards

Andreas Baumann
