Whistle Stop Tour 2022

Wicklow rafts
A week-long cruise in company, visiting seven east coast ports in eight days.
  • Wednesday 11 May Last orders for meals and confirming bookings
  • Saturday 14 May Muster at Malahide; dinner ashore
  • Sunday 22 May Leave for home ports from Dun Laoghaire
You don’t have to visit every port – hop on and hop off as you choose.
This is a great opportunity to explore local ports in good company, with discounts on berthing and food that might even cover the cost of membership.
It’s also a chance to practice techniques with the help of experienced cruising sailors: rafting up, berthing on a harbour wall and anchoring.
If you think you might be interested, please submit a booking form. When you’ve done that you can download the Briefing Notes – a PDF giving details of all the arrangements.

Organisers (events@cruising.ie): John Murphy, Simon Parker, Conor Lindsay and port coordinators.
