7yr old did splash course & enjoyed every minute of it. Couldn't wait to go again the next day. The most fun was going in the rain, it made the experience more exciting.

Dingle bay is an excellent place to learn hoy to sail, nice breeze and still sheltered from the Atlantik. The members of staff were lovely, always helpful and made me feel secure on my first trips on the sailing boat. I recommend it to everyone!

What a super week our kids had on a 5 day dingy sailing course. With winds challenging, a good fleet kept them sailing for all 5 days. Instructors (Phelim, Oran and the crew)were fabulous. Recommend it to any beginner sailors. John/Elaine
