Sailing Club

The Sailing Club welcomes all abilities from beginners to experienced sailors, come along and join in!

The Edinburgh University Sailing Club welcomes all abilities from beginners to experienced sailors. Founded in 1933 as the Edinburgh University Yacht Club, we are a well established club with lots to offer.

For the experienced sailors among us we have multiple teams to chose from. We have Team Racing teams and yachting teams you can try out for. Both of these teams compete at a high level sending a team to BUSA-BUCS last year for both Yachting and Team Racing. We also had multiple sailors compete at BUCS Fleet Racing Championships last year.

Additionally, members have got to be involved in weekly club sailing. Beginners who had never stepped into a boat a couple of months ago are now competent sailors, while the more experienced have enjoyed the chance to get on the water.

Our Annual West Coast Cruise is the trip of a lifetime featuring stunning sailing, views and cruising on Scotlands magnificient West Coast. 

Our club (along with the sport of sailing in general) is renowned for its socialising. Joining in with club activities is a great way to meet new, like-minded people and make new friends. Highlights of the social calendar include BOAT PARTY!, Steam Racing, and our annual Flat Crawl.


A Premium Membership also includes £5 off a boat party ticket and a £20 discount on SSW  if bought during welcome week all for £69!
