Teams & Compititions 

The Sailing Club runs 3x Dinghy teams and 1x Yachting team, which compete in the Scottish Student Sailing league. The A Dinghy Team competes in the Gold league, the B in the Silver league, and the C in the Bronze league. The yachting competitions have no leagues, and the team also competes in the Ceilidh Cup which is organised between Scottish Student Sailing and The Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club.

Recreational Sessions 

The club offers recreational sessions in the form of courses and trips, but they are held over the space of a weekend or week rather than regular weekly sessions. All club members can also compete in the St Andrews Sailing Club's Sunday league, which runs from April - October.


Throughout the year, the club offers RYA courses to students in partnership with the St Andrews Town Club.
