Here is what one of last year's Women said about the course.

When I agreed to do the Women on Water Sailing course with SYC I got a lot more than I expected! I’m only sorry that I didn’t do it sooner!
Two of the best weekends of my summer have been spent learning to sail around Sligo Bay with a fantastic group of women while doing the Women on Water sailing course with SYC. What a great way to enjoy the very best of what Sligo has to offer – great outdoor adventure, amazing scenery and the best craic with a great group of lovely women.  
We got to experience sailing in all conditions -  from windy recoveries to bobbing around on a lovely sunny day and ‘racing’ around the bay in a steady breeze.
I never thought starting out that I would actually be able to helm a boat safely around the bay after two weekends (and one or two accidental swims). But we were guided through the ropes by two very enthusiastic and patient instructors – Sarah and Helen. Even when the weather made things a bit hairy, they made us feel safe on the water and the made the experience a very enjoyable one.
Thank you to all involved for such an enjoyable experience – Una for organising it; our brilliant instructors – Sarah, Helen and Sam; Karl and Mick for keeping us safe; and my new friends – all the ladies who participated. See you for supervised sailing on Sunday’s J
