‘Sail Spree’ - get afloat in Roscommon for the National Sailing weekend

On the weekend of 23rd and 24th June, over 60 sailing clubs and training centres nationwide will open their doors to take part in Sail Spree, an initiative developed by the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) to encourage people of all ages out on to the water to experience the thrill of water based activities.

  Over the Sail Spree weekend the venues will offer taster sessions in sailing, powerboating, windsurfing and jet skiing. Many clubs will also provide on shore activities including entertainment, food, drink and music guaranteeing a great day out for all the family.

   Twin Lakes Sailing Club will be celebrating Sail Spree with sailing taster sessions on the northern shores of Lough Ree on both Saturday and Sunday. Basing themselves in Lanesborough, they will be operating their sailing taster sessions from the Waterways Ireland pontoons on the Ballyleague western shore. So for your chance to experience the thrill of sailing on Lough Ree and to book your place, or if you just want more information about their event, check out the website

   Commenting on the event ISA Chief Executive Harry Hermon stated: “We are surrounded by a beautiful natural resource which provides us with unlimited capabilities for recreation. We hope that opening our doors for Sail Spree will encourage local communities to try something new and explore the possibilities on their doorstep”.
