Whatever your sailing ability, Exeter University Sailing Club has something for you. After winning BUSA team racing championships in 2017 and again in 2019, and BUSA Yachting Champions in 2019, EUSC secured its place as the most succesful university sailing club in the history of BUCS. EUSC caters for experienced racers and complete beginners alike. Since 1949, we’ve been getting students on the water, offering chilled BBQs, national level competition and everything in between.
Our casual (beginners and improvers) section attracted over 300 sailors last year. With BBQs, club days and weekly trips with instructors on hand all included within your membership, EUSC offers the perfect opportunity to get out on the water or learn to sail. On top of this, weekly socials, intramural sports teams and black tie dinners means that there’s plenty to get involved with off the water too.
Whether it’s fleet racing, team racing or yachting that interests you, EUSC has a team for you. Throughout the year we send teams around the country to compete against other Universities in all disciplines, regularly finishing in podium positions. Closer to home, we run a weekly fleet racing series at Roadford Lake with prizes to be won at Christmas and End of Season Dinner.
By far the most popular discipline at University level, Team Racing brings together boat handling, teamwork and tactics.
We are highly competitive in the university fleet racing circuit and have medalled 11 times in the last 12 university championships. Our girls won the girls prize in 2019, while the boys brought the bronze home.
Yachting with Exeter University Sailing Club caters for all, from beginners to experienced racers there’s something for everyone! The club offers a comprehensive calendar of training and racing for Keelboats, Yachting and Match Racing throughout the year. The team won the BUCS Yachting Champions in 2019.
