While Corks and vast expanses of water aren't usually a harmonious pair, on occasion a touching union transpires. Historic seaport Cobh, part of Cork's picturesque harbour is home to SailCork, a multifaceted school of craft-based water shenanigans. A family run company flourishing for 30 years, SailCork provides fans of watery stretches with powerboating, dinghy sailing, yachting and shore based navigational instruction. The extremely experienced owner, Eddie English, has been teaching sailing since 1969 and still races dinghies and cruisers. He is an ISA/RYA sailing and powerboat trainer and examiner as well as a yachtmaster instructor and examiner. The company also offers little dippers an extensive junior boating scheme, which allows them to take the helm of powerboats and cruise the world's salty pond.
CityDeal holders are offered a two hour taste of yachting or dinghy sailing at SailCork for €29 instead of €58. While yachts are light weight vessels that cruise across the ocean's skin, dinghies offer a smaller, more recreational boating experience. Those who opt for a spot or yachting can enjoy a two hour experience while dinghy time is around two and a half hours.
