Welcome to Swords Sailing & Boating Club (SSBC)

Swords Sailing & Boating Club is located on the beautiful Broadmeadow Estuary in Malahide Co. Dublin. Less than a mile from the M1 and only 9 miles from Dublin City Centre.

The estuary is sheltered and not really affected by the tide which enables sailing at anytime of the day in a relatively safe environment.

The club is family friendly and runs an extensive sailing programme starting from after Paddy’s day in March until the end of October beginning of November (see calendar for full details) for both adults and children. Training is available for all club members and children of family members only.

New members are always welcome. If you would like to talk to someone about becoming a member, then come down to the club on club racing days Sunday afternoons from 12.30pm or Wednesday evenings in summer May to Aug from 6pm and introduce yourself, someone will point you in the right direction. This is the first step in our membership procedure.
