On this course you will learn the skills needed to Crew on a Galway Hooker Sailing Boat. I was one of the participants of the first ever Hooker Crew Skills course in the city and cannot recommend the course enough. The course covers the history of the Galway Hooker, some of the folk tales handed down the generations and of course the practical skills needed to crew one of these iconic boats. It is a rear opportunity to meet the people keeping this unique and valuable heritage alive in Galway City. Plus you get to sail a Galway Hooker on Galway Bay!

The Hooker Sailors are already preparing for this summers sailing season, so this might be your last chance to book a place on this incredibly popular Hooker Crew Skills Training to e ready for summer 2019.
