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, otherwise known as the best place to sail in the World, which is about a 30 minute drive from campus; lifts are arranged for people without transport in the finest of cars with the finest of tunes and it is always a case of the more the merrier!

 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 or Greece which is guaranteed to be the best holiday of your life*. Please feel free to contact any of the committee if you have any questions about the sailing club!

*or nearly the best.

Come and Meet Us

We run training every Wednesday, and recreational sailing every Saturday. All of the information for coming along is on our Facebook page, which is our main source of organisation, 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, but it takes less than t-e-n minutes and you can easily sign up on the SU website, or message us and we'll sort it all for you.
