Sustainability, Biodiversity and Environment

Hike Group

Green Practices,
Sustainable Commitment

West Cork Sailing Centre prides itself for having a set of environmental standards from the very beginning, with fuel saving, waste management, consumption management, end of life purchase planning and more. The redeveloped Boat House has a 15 panel solar frame to power the building and geothermal heating providing underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs. Insulation throughout the building and large solar heat gain from the large patio doors make it a cosy building with limited environmental impact.

Wildlife guardians,
dedicated, Beara advocates

Gail and Niall MacAllister are volunteers for the Seal Sanctuary and are often seen with a canoe on the roof so they can paddle out to a pup in distress somewhere on the Beara Peninsula. All tips given for the Kayak Rental are donated to the Seal Sanctuary.
Niall is Captain of Cul Lir, Ireland’s first purpose built marine research yacht and Gail works closing with a number of organisations to understand and protect our wildlife and biodiversity.

We take Safeguarding our clients seriously. Gail MacAllister is a Safeguarding 1, 2 and 3 tutor for Sport Ireland and regularly runs courses on behalf of Irish Sailing and other sporting organisations. You can read our Safeguarding Statement below.
