OUYC is entering the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s Round Britain and Ireland Race this August 2018.

RBI is an 1800 nautical mile quadrennial race around all outlying islands of Great Britain and Ireland. A crew of seven experienced sailors, all students or recent alumni of the University of Oxford, will be undertaking this epic race in a 38-foot racing yacht. We expect this incredible voyage to take approximately 2 weeks.

OUYC is actively seeking sponsors to help support an extraordinary student voyage. Involvement with the race will offer unique and significant exposure to both the sailing world and the University of Oxford. Our title sponsor will choose our team name and have their logo and branding displayed on the boat’s hull, mainsail and all our blogs and publicity. If you would like to discuss opportunities to support our team with equipment or funding, please contact Sean (yachting-racing@ouyc.co.uk).
