Manannán sailing trip

Manannán News

Manannán will be going on a sailing weekend to Malahide over the June bank holiday weekend, 2-3 June, staying overnight in Malahide Sea Scout Den on Saturday 2 June. Please note that this trip is strictly weather-permitting and is subject to last-minute cancellation.


We will need to depart early on Saturday 2 June due to tides so we will be meeting in the Den at 0730, before sailing to Malahide. Scouts should make sure they have a big breakfast before they leave for the Den as it will be a long sail to Malahide.

We will stay overnight in Malahide Sea Scout Den, before sailing back to Dún Laoghaire on Sunday 3 June. We expect to be finished in the Den on Sunday at around 1830.
