Sailing, Windsurfing and Kitesurfing
Rosturk Woods is an ideal location to learn sailing and windsurfing, and tuition by and ISA approved instructor can be arranged whether you are a beginner or more advanced, a child or an adult. This does need to be booked in advance so please let us have as much notice as possible. For the more experienced sailors challenging and exhilarating conditions can usually be found further to seaward and a Hobie 15 usually provides a good means of enjoying oneself.
We can also arrange tuition for Windsurfing and the shallow gently shelving shore in front of Rosturk is an ideal site for beginners. We can guide more experienced wind surfers to other sites nearby.
Kitesurfing sites abound in Clew Bay, each suitable for a given wind. The shallow, open shore in front of Rosturk is suitable for a south westerly wind while Keel Lake in Achill suits a southerly wind. All suitable for experienced kiters and we can give you a guide as to where to go once we know the wind direction.
Clew Bay is an ideal place for Kayaking and Rosturk is a great place to set out on a kayaking adventure. Ali Donald runs ‘Saoirse Na Mara’ which means “Freedom of the Seas” and we recommend that people book Ali to get the most out of both Clew Bay and their kayaking experience. He will come to Rosturk with all the necessary specialist equipment and a great attitude. Check out his website at www.irelandwestseakayaking.com
