Sailing Club

An all abilities sailing club with an active social scene

Group Logo

125 Members

One of the greatest sports clubs at the University of Portsmouth. UPSC sail dinghies and yachts, for social sailing and/or competition.

We have a fleet of six Fireflies that we sail from Old Portsmouth for weekly team training and social sailing. We charter Sunsail's new F40 yachts and regularly sail all over the Solent.

Every year we also go on our "Summer Sail Week" and sail chartered Sunsail yachts in the Mediterranean. Our dinghy team regularly attends events all over the country, including the BUSA Fleet racing nationals and the BUSA team racing qualifiers where we have often qualified for the national BUSA team racing finals. For Yacht Team racing we enter BUSA Yacht Nationals, which we host every year. All abilities of sailor are welcome to join, even if you have not sailed before!

We offer beginner sessions, in which you will be taught by members with RYA Instructor qualifications, for free! You just have to pay the club membership fee, and safety boat fuel costs whenever you decide to go out on the water (max £3).

We turn out for every Purple Wednesday, and are known for our memorable (or not) nights out. If that's not your scene, we have relaxed socials, alternating between Portsmouth Sailing Club and the Apsley House Pub. Membership includes use of our Fireflies, all insurance costs and sailing kit (wetsuits and buoyancy aids) for when you're on the water.

It includes subsidised yachting on Sunsail F40s, both on weekdays and weekends, as well as opportunities to sail at the BUSA Yachting Nationals which we host every year. As a member you're also entitled to affiliate membership with Portsmouth Sailing Club and opportunities to join in with their club activities.

Join and keep an eye on our Facebook page for details on our upcoming sessions!
