Sailing / Yacht Club
Newtownards Sailing Club was founded in 1964, following a public meeting in the Town Hall, chaired by Stanley Woods, JP and ex Mayor of Newtownards, who became the first Vice Commodore, with Lady Mairi Bury as Commodore. Ards Sailing Centre, based at Newtownards Sailing Club, is the affordable way to experience the thrill of sailing. Ards Sailing Centre will make training plain sailing. The club is an RYA Regional Training Establishment and has recently undergone a rebuilding programme with excellent new facilities. Ards Sailing Centre has a fleet of dinghies suitable for all aspects of training from absolute beginners to the more experienced sailors. Sail training will be in a variety of dinghies such as Toppers, Lasers, Picos and Wayfarers.
