ISA Training

isa-logo      Irish Sailing Association – Training Centre

We offer ISA sail and powerboat training to members at our Scout Den on Malahide’s outer estuary.
All lessons are run by qualified ISA Instructors and supervised by an appropriate ISA Senior Instructor.
This is to ensure the highest standards in tuition and safety.

Our ISA Training Programme is an initiative to help upskill members and to encourage scouts to participate in adventurous sport while in a safe environment.
All funds associated with this programme are used to cover the cost of running the courses, to maintain the standard of the fleet and to support any further development in sailing, powerboating and seamanship at Malahide Sea Scouts.

Thank you for supporting our ISA Training Programme.
