About Sailing & Windsurfing
COVID-19: Despite the fact that there are currently limitations in place YUSWC will continue to remain active and social, join our Facebook group, check out our Instagram or drop us an email to see what we are currently up to.
YUSWC is a welcoming and friendly club open to all abilities. We offer our members the opportunity to learn to sail as well as develop their skills in both sailing and windsurfing and participate in racing through weekly sessions.
We attend sailing team racing events throughout the year, getting to travel to other universities, meet new people and compete in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. As well these more laidback events our sailing race season peaks in the BUCS Team Racing Championships. We also send two teams to Roses for our annual battle against Lancaster.
We are also only a short hop to Scarborough and the North Sea - we have a good relationship with Scarborough Yacht Club so if you are keen to get involved in sailing larger boats while you in York, we're the club for you! We will be getting involved with crewing on the SYC's fleet of 707s, so let us know if that sounds up your street or if you think you want to give it a go!
We also attend windsurfing events which give people of all abilities the chance to learn new things and meet other windsurfers from across the country.
In addition to on the water sessions, we run weekly socials with a variety of themes where you can make new friends. This all leads up to a week-long holiday in Greece to relax at the end of the academic year, where you can sail, windsurf or just lie in the sun.
Even if you are not a seasoned racer, we have something for you. Please drop us an email if you have any questions at all!
