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.
Our teams have enjoyed success over the years, with a 1st place at the 2017 BUCS Match Racing Championships and 2nd place at the 2018. BUCS Yachting Nationals. Next year our aim is to build on these successes further developing our strong team to challenge again at finals. The BUCS events have training and trials during term time before the calendar culminates with finals held over the Easter holiday.
While also fielding competitive teams for the BUCS events, during term time we run fortnightly Keelboat trips. A new venture this year which has proved to be very popular and will no doubt become a regular on the EUSC calendar. The keelboat trips are aimed at all abilities as we train and race against all types of teams in the competitive J80. We also have a Keelboat Squad which compete at the biggest regattas around the UK.
We aim to run a fortnightly weekend trip during term time, so keep a look out for the next trips sign up.
Trials for the yachting team will take place in the spring term, if you’re interested in signing up please register your interest with the yachting captain.
Any training for match racing is dependant on competition dates, please check the yachting page for more information.
