For the first time, OUYC are looking to provide social sailing in Michaelmas term. Watch this space for more info.

Twice a week during Trinity term, members of the OUYC dinghy squad run casual sailing sessions in the afternoon sun for all members of the university. Students of any ability can enjoy an afternoon on the water in our boats. OUYC owns 12 Firefly dinghies and an RS Xenon (all 2-man hiking boats). Sailing takes place at Farmoor Reservoir and students are accompanied by squad members to the reservoir on the short bus ride out of Oxford.

Sessions cost £6 (or £15 for the term) and, depending on the experience of those present, will usually involve cruising around with some casual racing if there’s enough interest.

Email the Social Sailing Secretary, Rowena, on for more information or to be added to the mailing list.
