Irish Cruising Club

Founded in 1929, the ICC is a club for seagoing sailors, who have a genuine interest in cruising. Most members live in Ireland and Northern Ireland, although there are many living in other parts of the world. The Club has no premises but holds regular social functions and rallies, both around Ireland and elsewhere. The club publishes two pilot books that cover the coasts of Ireland, and another, 'Cruising Ireland', that fills in the interesting details about the coastal regions. All are essential aids to safe and enjoyable voyaging around Ireland.
