Oxford University Yacht Club
University of Oxford
The Oxford University Yacht Club (OUYC) is made up of about 100 active members involved in Yacht and Dinghy sailing, each with their respective racing and casual aspects. The Dinghy Squad has a strong reputation, most recently placing 4th university nationally. The Ladies team are going from strength to strength, and are seeking to defend their third successive national victory next year. Our yachting section is growing; this year, for the first time, we sent two teams to the University Nationals. Whilst we continue to maintain a large cruising sector.
As a club, we consistently aim to widen participation of, and access to our sport. The success of the Oxford Dinghy Ladies Squad is unrivalled on a national scale, in both size and quality, and is something we are truly proud of. Creating a new ladies training event is our latest addition to the calendar, which encourages women in sailing across national universities. Our Yachting ‘Extravaganza’ further demonstrates how we aim to increase access to sailing by maximising the number of student opportunities to sail during their time at university.
