Malahide Yacht Club was founded in 1958 and has grown to a medium sized club of almost 300 members catering for racers, cruisers, power boaters, dinghy sailors, juniors and those who just like to potter. The Club operates from two premises.
Keelboat racing is organized to suit the tides. Racing is 'around the cans' in the sea area between the coast and Lambay Island and Ireland's Eye. The racing fleet comprises craft in the 23 to 36 feet range. In excess of thirty races are run during the season with all keelboats racing together on the Echo & Channel handicap systems.
A very active cruising group organises activities throughout the season. Boats range in size from 17 feet upwards. There is a ferry service for those wishing to keep their boats on moorings rather than in the marina. Swinging moorings are readily available in the lower estuary.
Further up the estuary, on the enclosed waters of the Broadmeadows, the Club has another premises which hosts dinghy sailing and junior training. Lasers, Mirror and Optimists are the most popular classes.
Extensive boat and car parking is available.
