About Us

Company about

Founded in 1954, by a group of local enthusiasts with no facilities and less money. None the less, several of them built their own Dublin Bay Mermaids. Designed in 1933, a fleet of these beautiful clinker built seventeen foot dinghies are still the mainstay of racing in the club, over fifty years later.

Since those early days, the club has developed beyond recognition, with a fine clubhouse, yard, private slipway and fenced and serviced boat park.
In addition to the Mermaids, there are now a substantial fleets of cruisers and motor boats moored in the estuary, an active Junior section sailing Optimist, Pico, Laser and Feva dinghies, and members are involved in a wide range of water sports, from fishing to kayaking and diving.
Courses are also organised for adult beginners and for developing more advanced skills.
Rush Sailing Club is a recognised ISA Training Centre and operates under ISA guidelines in providing quality training and coaching for both adult and junior members. Click here to access the ISA website.
If you are interested in learning to sail or improving your skills please mail your details to us by email and we will be in touch.
