Baltimore Sailing Club was founded in 1956 as a summer sailing club. From its inception it has been successfully developing leisure and competitive sailing in Baltimore Harbour. The Club over the years has continued to expand and teach safe sailing skills to young people from all backgrounds. With a function room, kitchen and bar it is very active in the summer months running sailing events, courses and many social activities.
Situated in West Cork on the edge of Roaringwater Bay. The clubhouse is on the pier and close to all facilities. Baltimore Harbour is a busy fishing village all year around with a regular ferry service to the many islands.
The decision has been made to cancel sailing tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 26th July) as a mark of respect for the Late Mrs. Joan O' Sullivan wife of past commodore Denis O' Sullivan and mother of committee member Sheila O' Sullivan whose funeral will be taking place tomorrow at 1p.m from the Sacred Heart Church in Rath.
