Welcome to the University of London Sailing Club!!
Never tried sailing before? – We have something for you. Experienced sailor keen for team racing? – We have something for you too. Basically, we cater for all levels of experience. So why not pop down to Wembley for some great time on the water!
What we do?
For those of you who don't know, team racing is a competitive and fun sport! It consists of 10 minute-long, action-packed, fast-paced races with a huge focus on using tactics and manoeuvres. It is an invaluable discipline of sailing and only practised at university-level; in fact, the University of London was the first university to establish it in the 1960's along with Oxford and Cambridge.
On the other hand, if you're completely new to sailing, learning with us is not only the cheapest but will also be the most fun way to learn, we guarantee!
When and where we meet?
We are having a Welcome Saill and BBQ for beginners on Wednesday 2nd October at the Welsh Harp Sailing Club. It will be a great chance for you to meet us and find out about what we offer. On Saturday 5th October there will be a sailing session for those of you who are more experienced. Check our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/UniversityOfLondonSailingClub) for the event details and do not hesitate to get in contact with any questions.
We train at BTYC Sailsports on the Welsh Harp, close to Wembley Stadium; directions can be found here: Welsh Harp Sailing Club
For those of you who have been sailing for a while and like to think you know the bow from the stern, come along on a Wednesday afternoon or Saturday morning to our team-racing training. It runs from 1:30pm to 4:30pm on Wednesday and 10.00am through till 1.00pm on Saturday. Sessions are often followed by a social in the evening. We also regularly travel around the country to team-racing events at other universities, going as far as Birmingham, Oxford, Warwick, and Manchester.
