We are a friendly, welcoming sailing club that caters for total beginners and seasoned pros. We compete at Team Racing, Yachting and Match Racing events and run intramural racing for beginners.



The club currently owns 10 fireflies and sails at the 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! In 2019 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.

Usually every summer we go on tour as a club, where at least 30 of us sail around from island to island in the Mediterranean. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we had to cancel Summer sail week this year, but we are all ready to go for next year so don't panic!
