The Sailing & Windsurfing Club is open to all abilities and runs a range of activities throughout the year. At the moment the club's primary focus is Sailing, with recent investments in a new fleet of boats and new sails, though there are plans to expand on the amount of Windsurfing activities available too. The club train on weekends and sometimes weekdays at Winscar Reservoir in the heart of the Peak District, and share a club house with Pennine Sailing Club and the University of Sheffield. The club often go on residential trips to training weekends and racing events, including BUCS and BUSA competitions, at other universities throughout the year, and also host their own annual training weekend. All equipment needed is available to borrow for new members wanting to try out the sport for the first time.
Opportunities are available through the club for students to gain safety and sailing qualifications.
The club does not hold trials and is open to everyone. To get involved simply register your interest here or at Sports Fair in September.
