Programma

Have you ever tried sailing. Get the feel of the wind in your hair, experience the thrill of the journey, while all the time being safe in the knowledge you are in good capable hands.

The day starts with a safety briefing at Marlogue Marina, one of The Great Island's hidden gems. Then its a short motor South to revel the full extent ofCork's lower harbour. Depending on wind direction on the day, we then hoist the sails and head West towards the historic town of Cobh. Once we reach the main shipping channel we then turn South, heading towards the harbour mouth and the last anchorage of the Titanic. North is the next direction we take, which brings us past Spike Island and the Spit Bank Lighthouse ( the oldest screw piled Lighthouse in the world). Here we turn West along the "Cobh road" in front of the Holy Ground. Cobh town is then on our Starboard side and you get an unique view of the town with all it's wonder history. From here we turn East and run back towards our Berth in Marlogue.

You will have a chance to get a feel for trimming the sails and steering the boat. Your professional skipper will encourage you to get involved in the sailing of the yacht; alternatively you may sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.
Other things to note
Safety is guaranteed, all guests must wear a Buoyancy Aid when on the marina and on the boat. We will always provide these.

This was a great tour. The weather did not cooperate but Ian and his son Rob made the trip enjoyable. Their knowledge of the area and the sea made the trip grand.

5 star ***** experience, highly recommended. Ian is an exceptional captain and fantastic storyteller. Besides a very safe and comfortable sail, I learned a great deal about Cork Harbor and local geography. Couldn’t have asked for a better day on the water. Not to be missed!

When my wife and I first requested this “excursion”, I guess is the word, Ian enthusiastically responded, albeit with the proviso “hoping we have good weather”. You see, when you’re inviting the Atlantic Ocean to join the party, you just don’t know what kind of mood she’s gonna be in when she shows up! Fortunately, our appointed morning came with brilliant sunshine, soft winds, and mild temperatures! Met Ian and mate, George, on the dock and set off on an idyllic cruise which lasted a bit more than three hours, time that passed all too quickly! Ian and George (19 years old with the world on a string! What a delightful young man!) handled the sailboat deftly and professionally, all the while telling great stories (of various levels of believability) of harrowing big-water adventures, all while showing us the stunning coastline of Cobh, before pointing our craft out to the edge of the ocean before turning her around and opening up the sheets! The ensuing beauty of the quiet as the bow sliced its way through the water was nothing less than nautical poetry. Long story short, we enjoyed our time immensely! Thanks for the grand time, boys! Would love to do it again!

Ian was great! From the very beginning he was very responsive, flexible and accommodated all our requests. The sailboat was pretty, clean and well maintained. During our tour we learnt as much about sailing as about Cork Harbour. We truly enjoyed every minute of this activity.
