Travel

John McKelvie has been working hard on several initiatives to minimise travel costs
 
Multi-stackers
 
We advise sailors to get together and use multi-stackers to minimise ferry costs.
 
John McKelvie is co-ordinating multistackers, please contact him if you are interested.
 
Sailboat Deliveries are taking bookings now, £350 per boat, with a minimum of 8 boats needed to make it viable.  Please contact becky@sailboatdeliveries.co.uk Then all you need to do is book a super cheap flight to Belfast and the club is just a short distance away.
 
Ferries, including discount
  

There are four ferry routes you can use:

Liverpool – Belfast

Holyhead – Dublin

Cairnryan – Belfast

Fishguard Rosslare

 

We recommend either one of the first two options. The overnight ferry from Liverpool with a 4 berth cabin is particularly good and the timings usually work out well. Whilst a little more expensive the driving time and petrol/diesel is a lot less.

Journey time from Belfast Port to SLYC is about 45 minutes when towing. From Dublin Port the driving time would be 2 – 2 1/2 hours.

 John McKelvie has negotiated a 15% discount with Stena Line - you will be given a booking code with your entry.
 
Flights
 
Belfast is served by two airports; the George Best City Airport and the International.

The City Airport is approximately 30 mins from SLYC and the International is about an hour.
