About the Club

We are a fun, friendly club that offers competitive Team Racing and Development in Fireflies, RYA dinghy courses for beginners and Yachting. Whatever your experience, you'll have a great time in Sailing.

Club Philosophy

Whether you sail yachts or race dinghies, the University Sailing Club has something for everyone. Our doors are open to both the seasoned professional and the absolute beginner. We set out to do our best, take on new challenges, and bring home trophies.

We attempt smack downs at mark four and jives on the SU dance floor. After a year of 7am starts, boating birthdays and enough curry to make you a true Manc, we hope you’ll feel a part of the UMSC family.
