University of Exeter Sailing Club

The University of Exeter Sailing Club's sailing programme has grown to enjoy success on a national level in recent years. The club welcomes all sailing abilities, with opportunities to learn to sail and complete Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sailing qualifications along with racing. The club has three team race teams, match racing teams and a yachting team, giving you the chance to sail as part of one of the most successful university sailing clubs in England. We train every Wednesday afternoon at the Roadford Reservoir and are away competing at events most weekends throughout the season. In early March we host our own team-racing event, the Exeter Excalibur.
