Tribute to Galway Bay Sailing Club Members At Opening of New Facilities

Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton is due to open a new training facility at Galway Bay Sailing Club on Saturday (June 15).

Ms Naughton, who has also been Government Chief Whip, is a Fine Gael TD for the Galway West constituency.

GBSC is an accredited Irish Sailing training centre, with tuition and training to national and international standards.

The club at Rinville, Oranmore provides a wide range of sailing courses for all ages, physical abilities and skill levels from Easter and throughout the summer.

Last month, it announced that its new facilities represented a major investment to the tune of €380,000.

It also announced the appointment of Johnny Shorten as its training centre manager.

GBSC commodore Pat Irwin has said that the centre is “an important development in the continuing evolution of the club and the expansion of our sail training capabilities in Rinville”.
