Crookhaven Harbour Sailing Club was founded in 1979. The summer based club has a large member base who sail in the beautiful setting of Crookhaven from June to September each year.
CHSC is primarily a summer sailing club. The club runs an annual 3 week Junior sailing course in July. The sailing course is run under the ISA Small Boat Sailing Scheme and Start Sailing, Basic Skills, Improving Skills, Go Racing 1 and Advanced Boat Handling are instructed by a fantastic team of instructors. Our Junior Organsing team of Delma O'Leary and Aidan Murphy have appointed Ross Elwood as Senior Instructor for the sailing course in 2014 and recruitment for our instructing team has now commenced.
