Wessex Sailing

Wessex Sailing Club is the home of sailing at the University of Southampton. We are one of the largest and most successful clubs in the AU. We have medalled at BUCS championships consecutively since their inception. Alongside our formidable success we also run casual and beginners sessions in both yachts and dinghies which is supported by Southampton's in-house RYA training centre that teaches a wide spectrum of RYA courses from Level One to Yachtmaster.

The fun and social atmosphere of the club, backed up by first rate facilities and an outstanding location will mean that you get the best out of your sailing whatever your standard. Find out more by visiting our website: www.southamptonsailing.com.
