Sailing

We are a friendly and welcoming club that caters for a range of sailors from complete beginners to seasoned pros. The club currently owns 12 fireflies and sails at Tata Steel Sailing club in Port Talbot. We run sailing sessions for all members on Wednesday afternoons followed by epic socials in the evening.

The sailing club has competitive racing teams with an action packed race calendar that takes them all over the country to compete against other universities. We compete in Team Racing across the country as well as competing at the annual Yachting, Fleet Racing and Match Racing National competitions. We run our own sailing event annually - The Swansea Spartan - in which other universities join us in Swansea for a weekend of racing as well as two socials they will never forget! This past year we held our biggest event so far and it was a success all round, despite the difficult weather.

Throughout the year we run RYA courses including level 2, powerboat and First Aid for club members. This gives you a really good chance to gain qualifications and much needed knowledge on how to sail.

This summer we also went on holiday as a club to Corfu! 30 of us sailed around from island to island.

Sustainability

This year the sailing club is teaming up with The Green Blue to undertake their Sustainability Challenge. The mission of The Green Blue is to promote the sustainable use of coastal and inland waters by boating and watersports participants, as well as the sustainable operation and development of the recreational boating industry.

Boating sustainably is critical not only to the future of our sport but also to the maintenance of marine biodiversity with many species at risk of extinction if current trends in water pollution and temperature continue.
