  1. CLUB INFORMATION

    Welcome to Kircubbin Sailing Club!

    As a visitor to our website you may have many queries about the Club. Hopefully the information you will find on the tabs below or elsewhere on this website will provide you with the answers you are seeking however if not please use the Contact Us facility to ask any specific questions or alternatively why not call down on a Sunday evening and ask any member of the management committee.

  2. CLUB HISTORY

    The Club has its roots in competitive sailing which was originally based at the Harbour in Kircubbin and has been active on the sailing scene in Strangford Lough since the early 1900s. Even it the early days of the Club, Kircubbin’s sailors were among the best in Strangford Lough. More recently the Club’s Flying Fifteen fleet produced some of the best competitors in that class in the world.

    Although as the name suggests, the promotion of sailing is the main objective of the club, we welcome other types of craft as well. If you cast your eye around the Bay during the summer you will see motor cruisers, speed boats, fishing boats and cabin/day boats as well as sailing boats.
