About Us

Inniscarra Sailing and Kayaking Club was set up in 2002. We operate on Inniscarra Lake just upstream of Inniscarra Dam from a recreation area called “Inishleena” with the kind permission of the ESB. In 2004 the club put in its own dedicated slipway and boat holding area, it plans further improvements in the years ahead.


The club is just 3 miles from Ballincollig and 6 miles from Cork City on the Lee Valley reservoir. We have a small, but very keen local membership. Kayaking and sailing events take place throughout the year, mainly at weekends, with some mid-week sailing.

Kayak trips have also been organised at other locations including Glandore, Baltimore, Dingle, Lough Allua and the Lakes of Killarney

The flagship event of the year is the Commodore’s Cup. Kayak races in the morning are followed by sailing races. This year’s race will take place in September.

The freshwater lake is ideal for model sailboats and weekly Radio Sailing sessions are held at the Club. The Club hosted the 2011 International One Meter Irish National Class Southern Championship Regatta
