What We Do

The Cambridge University Cruising Club is a normal university sailing and windsurfing club with sections organising Team Racing, Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing, and RYA Training for students. There is also a senior section that maintains a news plus history blog and organises social events for alumni. Yachting ('big boat' stuff), formerly a section of the Club, has been a separate University club in its own right since 2013 - the Cambridge University Yacht Club.

We Have Something For Everyone

Sailors and windsurfers of all abilities are welcome, from people used to competing at the top levels of the sport, through those who are happy with a short sail followed by a trip to the pub, to those who have never set foot on a board before and are looking for training. Cambridge sailing and windsurfing offers a wide variety of opportunities - there will definitely be something in the Club for you!

Some History

Cambridge has always been a major force in UK sailing and university team racing - dominating the universities team racing championships for the last 4 years. Past members of the Club have gone on to gain Olympic Gold Medals and achieve success at the highest international levels - such as winning the Volvo Ocean Race. The Club was formed on 20th May 1893 and the present 'Cruising Club' name adopted on 6th February 1894. A comprehensive history of the Club is maintained on the Club's Alumni, News, History website - along with recent and past news items.
