What We Do

Welcome to the best Sailing Club in the UK - The University of Bath Sailing Club!

The Sailing Club sails all year round and welcomes sailors of all abilities - from the complete beginner to the most competitive racers. We sail at Chew Valley Lake, which is about a 30 minute drive from campus; lifts are arranged for people without transport and it is always a case of the more the merrier!

Thanks mainly to the University of Bath Alumni, we received a new fleet of Fireflies a few years ago which we are constantly maintaining. We race at events around the country, as well as doing training and casual sails at Chew Valley. Every year we also go on Summer Sail Week, yachting around Croatia which is loads of fun. Please feel free to contact any of the committee if you have any questions about the sailing club!

Reasons to Join Us

  • Sailing open to everyone, from beginners to racers
  • Compete in Fleet Racing, Team Racing, Match Racing and Yachting events nationally.

Come and Meet Us

We run training every Wednesday, and recreational sailing every Sunday. All of the information for coming along is on our Facebook page, or feel free to contact any member of committee.

For insurance reasons, you will need to have completed a swim test to be able to sail.
