What's on offer at the Sailing & Windsurfing Club?
SHU's Sailing Team is open to all abilities and sailing backgrounds from complete novices, dingy or yacht sailors, those that race/compete and sail socially.
The club currently train on Saturdays or Sundays each week at Winscar Reservoir in the heart of the Peak District. They share a club house with Pennine Sailing Club and the University of Sheffield.
Training consists of a mixture of social sailing, and team or individual racing. The welcoming team atmosphere is a great place to learn, get involved and have fun out on the water!
The club runs a range of exciting activities throughout the year. This includes residential trips to training weekends and racing events (e.g. BUCS and BUSA competitions), at other universities throughout the year. They host their own annual training weekend, and also compete in Varsity!
They travel together via car or mini bus from Sheffield Hallam University to the reservoir.
All equipment and kit 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.
Windsurfing at Hallam welcome all windsurfing from complete beginners to rapid slalom racers to hardcore wave junkies.
Following success from last year, the club will be attending both flat water and wave Student Windsurf Association events which are the perfect place to learn and start competing!
There is also potential for windsurfing trips to gain experience in waves.
We will also be participating in BUCS this year.
The club does not hold trials, instead they run taster sessions at the beginning of the academic year.
To get involved simply register your interest here or at Sports Fair.
The Sports Fair will be on Wednesday 25th September 2019 at the Owen Building.
Membership for the year is inclusively £60.
