Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Sailing Club!

thSail is an extremely friendly and inclusive sailing club which welcomes everyone and provides a safe and fun environment in which to develop your sailing skills. We compete regularly in Dinghy and Yachting competitions which include Team Racing, Match Racing, and Fleet Racing disciplines. If competing isn't your thing, don't worry! We are an extremely sociable club that meets every Wednesday for recreational sailing followed by drinks and free food at our sponsor bar! In the summer you will be sure to see us whip out a BBQ or Pizza oven at recreational sailing! We also host a weekends cruise around the Firth of Clyde in September, as well as a week long summer holiday yachting cruise in Croatia or Greece. If you are a complete beginner to sailing, we run a learn to sail course throughout both semesters to which anyone is welcome!

We hope to see you out on the water soon!

Membership – what do I need?

1. Sports Union Membership – this is a flat £30 fee for the year (or £23 for one semester) which goes directly back to the club to fund various club activities and operations, including:

  • Personal accident and public liability insurance
  • Coaching fees, competition entry and transport costs, club equipment and external facility hire

2. Sports Club Bolt-on Fee – we also charge a £10 joining fee for the year which is charged to subsidise additional sport specific costs such as buying and maintaining equipment. This fee is charged on top of the Sports Union membership and again, goes directly back to the club and participants taking part in our activities.
