Ballyholme Bay sits within the town of Bangor, a superb sheltered bay for dinghies and boats. The club hosts a large range of sailing and power boating events from Club Racing and Pirate's Day to National and World Championships.
Ballyholme Yacht Club boasts three members who competed at the London 2012 Olympics - Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern in the 49er, and James Espey in the Laser dinghy. Past Olympic success has seen four other Club members participate in previous Olympic Games.
The town of Bangor is a seaside town located 13 miles from Belfast and has excellent transport links to the city.
