Monkstown Bay Sailing Club is located in the picturesque village of Monkstown, which overlooks Monkstown Bay in Cork Harbour.

Dinghy league races are generally held within the Bay area, while Cruiser league races extend their reach up river to Passage and out the harbour to Cobh, Whitegate and beyond.

Weekend events make full use of the Harbour waters, including races to Blackrock, East Ferry and Ballinacurra, and trips to Whitebay and Crosshaven.
