Rosses Point in Sligo Bay, County Sligo is one of the most ideal and beautiful locations for inshore racing in the country. This is where you will find Sligo's Yacht Club.
The original Sligo Yacht Club was founded in 1821 and did most of its racing on Lough Gill. Sligo Yacht Club has a healthy fleet of some 25 G.P.14's, Mirrors and an ever increasing Cruiser class. Racing for Cruisers take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. The G.P.14's race on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays while the Mirrors take to the water every day of the week during the Summer holidays.
The club has a very enthusiastic junior section and each year there is a well attended junior sail training course run under the auspices of the Irish Sailing Association.
Sligo Yacht Club race for the world’s oldest sailing trophy, the Ladies Cup, and when not contested, it’s on display in Sligo County Museum.
