The Silvery Light Sailing Project  promotes  Community and Youth Sailing,  Maritime Heritage  and Tall Ship  Volunteering 

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for all  to experience getting afloat  through  youth and community sailing  onboard the Volharding,

a 90 ft Dutch Sailing Barge   

VOLHARDING at the Quays Newry


  In line with the current Government recommendations and restrictions on Social Gatherings and in the interests of Health and Safety, we have  taken a decision to cancel our intended sailing activities until further notice.


We continue to  monitor  developments and hope to operate our Summer Schedule when the situation improves.

Thank you for your support.   We hope it will not be too long until we can welcome you back onboard.
