Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Sailing Club, a thriving community that combines competitive sailing, social events, and beginner-friendly teaching in one dynamic package. As the leading university sailing club in Scotland, we offer a diverse range of sailing experiences, from fun and social sailing sessions to high-level competition.

Our club is renowned for its team racing and prowess. Team racing is a fast-paced, tactical sailing game where two teams of three boats compete on a short course. With numerous corners for maximum place switching, each race is a thrilling 5-10 minute challenge. Our teams train rigorously, aiming to qualify for the prestigious BUSA Team Racing Championship.

We also excel in match racing, a one-on-one sailing duel that tests the skills and strategies of our sailors. Our focus is the BUSA Match Racing Championship, where we showcase our competitive spirit and sailing expertise.

Our greatest recent success has come in yacht racing, as Strathclyde are the current BUSA Yachting champions!

Beyond racing, we're committed to teaching beginners the joy of sailing. Our experienced members provide lessons and guidance, ensuring a safe and enjoyable learning environment. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the thrill of sailing, regardless of their skill level.

But the University of Strathclyde Sailing Club isn't just about sailing. We host a variety of social events throughout the year, fostering a strong sense of community and camaraderie among our members. From social gatherings to team-building activities, there's always something fun happening at our club.

Whether you're a prospective student, a parent, or a potential sponsor, we invite you to join us on this exciting journey. Experience the thrill of sailing, the joy of learning, and the warmth of our community at the University of Strathclyde Sailing Club.
