SILVERY LIGHT SAILING
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.
