The Yacht Squad competes in Fleet Racing throughout the year and takes part in several inshore regattas each year as well as several offshore regattas. Yacht fleet racing has been a Half-Blue sport since 2008. The Varsity Match is raced every year over the Easter holiday in the Solent, with the full history of the cup results found here. The Blues Team also competes in BUSA Yachting Nationals every spring – result from previous years can be found here.

Cruising trips are for members who want to enjoy sailing without the added competition are also organised throughout the year, with most trips taking place over Winter in order to keep costs low. We usually charter a yacht on the South Coast for a short weekend break, though occasionally venture out of the Solent for longer trips both within British waters and abroad. We cater for both beginners and experienced sailors.

If you want to start yachting at the beginning of the academic year and meet lots of yachties – then join our annual Yachting Extravaganza. The Extravaganza is our biggest event of the year, generally taking place on the Saturday of 3rd week / Sunday of 4th week Michaelmas term, and is probably the best way to get to know people in the club, as well as a great chance to try yachting at Oxford!
