About Us

Company about


Rush Sailing Club was founded in 1954 by a group of passionate local enthusiasts who built their own boats and launched them off the beach. Still passionate about our sport, we can now boast superb facilities, while proudly maintaining the volunteering spirit and sense of community that has got us where we are!


Our primary aim is to promote sailing and water sports in general, including motor boating, rowing, diving and kayaking. While new members will require a proposer and seconder on the application form, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have no contacts already and we will arrange for members to meet you. Alternatively, just call in anytime the club is open and ask for a committee member. The bar is open on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings; check the sailing schedule for activities.


We have a variety of club dinghies for training, and run regular courses for beginners in the summer, so there is no need to buy your own boat to get started. We also have a ‘Just Sailing’ programme for those who are not fixated on racing! Our rowing section is also always looking for recruits to row in their beautiful traditional racing skiff!


We have a thriving junior section, which runs training courses, including ten-week courses on Tuesday and Thursday evenings every spring. At least one parent/guardian of a participating child is required to join the Club as a member. We also host an annual ‘Try Sailing’ open day.


For cruisers and motor boats we have a magnificent gated and serviced boat park, where boats and trailers can be stored for an annual fee of €27 per metre. Craning in and out is organised co-operatively, with a crane hired in at the beginning and end of the season. Dinghy storage is available in the Clubhouse Yard.



Club racing takes place on a weekly basis throughout the year (even in the cold winter months!). The start time for each race varies depending on the time of high water so check the Sailing Schedule or contact the Class Captains for details.
New members are always welcome to get involved so why not contact the class captains listed below via our email address.

Dublin Bay Tides Can be found here.
Annually we host an open day to "Try Sailing". See our facebook page for details
