Our Background

Since its establishment in 1976, MSC has earned a good reputation in both cruising and racing. There are currently more than 250 members, covering cruiser racing and cruising, dinghy racing and tuition - and members of all ages taking part in activities during the season.

From regular summer cruising along the west coast and its islands, to wilderness expeditions to the Antarctic and Arctic, Mayo Sailing Club members have demonstrated their enthusiasm for sailing. On the racing front members have been to the fore in open events along the west coast, along with the Round Ireland Race, and recently some members winning the World Student Yachting Championships - arising from the very competitive club racing which has evolved at home at MSC.


MSC moved to Rosmoney in 1983, and offers something for all sailors.
