Sailing Club - Semester 1 Report 2016-17

Saturday 28 January 2017

This semester has been a great start to the year for the Sailing Club. The year began with our Freshers’ Week events, give-it-a-go, and our team trials for our dinghy team. The three Dinghy teams this year have been competing in the Scottish Student Sailing League Series and have qualified for the Platinum, Gold, and Silver fleets for our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd teams, respectively. This is an improvement for every team from last year. Our Yachting team participated in the Ceilidh Cup/ Scottish Student Sailing Match Racing Championships and tied for 1st.


This semester has been more successful than Semester 1 last year, and we are looking forward to Semester 2 where the Dinghy teams will continue to train and participate in the Scottish Student Sailing League Weekends and hopefully qualify for the BUSA Championships held in the spring. The Yachting Team will continue training and will compete in the Scottish Student Sailing Yachting Championship in the spring hoping to improve on our finish from last year. 

In Semester 2, we will be hosting the Scottish Student Sailing Champs. This three-day regatta will be held over the Easter Weekend and will feature teams from other Scottish Universities as well as possibly English Universities and Alumni Teams.
