University of Bristol Sailing Club
University of Bristol
University of Bristol Sailing Club is an inclusively student lead sports society. We aim to get as many university students involved with sailing as possible, whether that be racing at BUCS and national events or stepping foot in a boat for the first time. As a well established society the club fosters a great community and is well known as one of Uni's liveliest clubs. As of last year the Club has been awarded 'Performance Sport' status from the University of Bristol. This is an award given to 8 of the 70 university sports clubs that show the most impressive results in BUCS events and the greatest depth of opportunities for all of its members. Each year we run the Bristol Brew, a team racing event where we invite 21 teams from Universities and sailing clubs around the country to compete. As a club, we have also hosted the BUCS Western area Qualifier for the last 4 years. In the summer we run 'Summer Sail Week', a flotilla holiday in Greece which we advertised to all students in the university. Last year we sold 100 tickets, and ran 3 promotional events in Bristol.
