University Sailing Club Sponsorship
We're keen to help the next generation of Students enjoy sailing as much as we do!
We're thrilled to be running our University Sailing Club Sponsorship programme again in 2023, with the express aim of getting even more sailors out on the water and experiencing life on a boat! University is one of the BEST places to start sailing - it's the perfect time to learn new skills, take up new challenges, meet new friends (who will possibly become your crew-mates for life) and have some fun! Which means it's a great fit for PlainSailing.com! We'll be sharing the photos, videos and experiences last year's winners Oxford on their epic trip to Croatia very shortly!
We're on the lookout for a University Sailing Club that matches our ideals - with a great team ethos, a willingness to learn, ambition to be the best you can be, and fun at the heart of everything we do!
We're pleased to reveal our University Sailing Clubs shortlist! This year we've narrowed down the options to three Sailing Clubs, which all put forward exceptional bids.
Whilst 50% of the decision will be made by our expert panel (which includes ex-University sailors and a sailing explorer as well as PlainSailing.com Directors), 50% of it comes down to a public vote - your vote counts!
