Newtownards Sailing Club enjoys some of the best sailing water in Ireland. Clean, clear and safe, the club’s location on the North East of Strangford Lough is well suited to a wide variety of sailing activities; offering everything from windsurfing and dinghy racing to cruising.
From Spring to Autumn, Tuesday night is windsurfing club night. With rescue boat cover on standby if needed, beginners, intermediate and advanced are encouraged to go out and have a go and it is a rare occasion that you would sail alone if there is any wind. Lessons are available for non-members and members alike and are run during the summer. The Club has a number of Beginners' Boards and Sails thanks to a grant from the Sports Council. This makes learning easier and a lot of fun.
