About Us

 

WELCOME TO SWANSEA SAILING!

We welcome sailors with all levels of experience, so please come along to our free taster sessions and give it a go! You are guaranteed to make new friends and have fun, all while learning new skills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Social Sailing:

Our beginners sailing sessions are a great opportunity to take a break from academics and get out on the water - whether you have experience sailing or not! 

Beginners sailing sessions are held at Tata Steel Sailing Club on Wednesday afternoons; finishing in time for the evening social. RYA qualified instructors run the sessions, giving you the opportunity to learn new skills and develop your sailing competency - we would love to see you there!

Whether it is a beach bonfire, pub golf, or the infamous Spartan Curry Night; socials are great opportunities to interact with people from all areas of the club. Follow our Instagram @swanseasailing and Facebook @Swansea University Sailing for more information on the socials. 

 

Team Racing:

If you wish to take your sailing to the next level & take part in sailing competitions, our Saturday race training is for you. Racing on the team will give you the opportunity to compete all over the country, including at BUCS and Varsity. 

We run our own sailing event annually - Swansea Spartan (26th and 27th of November) - during which other universities join us in Swansea or a weekend of sailing as well as two socials they will never forget!

If you are interested in racing, contact us and we will invite you to a session. 

 

Yachting:

Throughout the year, we offer multiple weekends with opportunities to try Yacht Racing. The culminates in the BUCS Yachting Nationals which is taking place in April 2023. This week long regatta will challenge your sailing ability and team work. 

 

Summer Sail Week:

This year we sailed around Corfu and mainland Greece on our annual Summer Sail Week. It’s a chance for all members, experienced or not, to test their hard-earned skills while enjoying beautiful views, beautiful weather and a beautiful nightlife. Further details on Summer Sail Week 2023 coming soon!

Other Opportunities:

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.
