We are a place for students of all levels of experience to learn how to sail, create friendships, and develop confidence. It is an ideal sport for students, as being near water has been proven to be beneficial to mental health, and sailing is a good ‘all round’ sport, providing a medium to improve stamina, strength, and flexibility. The sport also exercises your mind and teaches a new skill, which is very empowering!
For people who want to relax and spend some time away from university stress by learning a new and relatively niche skill, the option of a social sail once a week will be a great one to have. Moreover, for people who have sailed before and want to work on their existing technique, our society can give you the chance to learn how to race and eventually, we hope to compete with other universities and attend national sailing training events and socials!
We believe in the bonding power of the sport and think it is a valuable asset for people who want to develop teamwork, leadership, communication and motor skills!
*2022 update: we are a very new society, and as a result we are still not confirmed on membership prices. There will be a fee, but we do not know what it is yet, so please keep that in mind if you are joining!
