The CUCrC was formed on 20th May 1893 and organises Team Racing, Windsurfing, and Dinghy Sailing for members of Cambridge University and others associated with the University and with Cambridge. It also sponsors an alumni network that maintains a news website (opens in a new window) and organises regular social events for sailors no longer in residence. Yachting (big boat stuff), formerly a section of the Club, is catered for by the CU Yacht Club (opens in a new window).
Details of what the Club offers and how to join will be found on the Team racing, Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing, Programme, and How to Join pages. Important Club policies, particularly those associated with Welfare, Health & Safety, Conduct, and Sports Discipline, are summarised on the Admin page, along with links to relevant Club administrative documents. A brief history of the Club, its Officers, and its trophies will be found on the History page.
Each section of the Club, other than the Alumni Section, is run by Cambridge University students. The head of a section is titled Vice Commodore and can be contacted via the email links below. The other student officers of each section are listed after the General Committee block below and can be contacted via their email links. However, if you want to register your interest in hearing about the Club's sailing and windsurfing activities, use this online form rather than contacting someone directly.
Overall coordination of the Club is maintained by the General Committee, whose members can be contacted via the email links below. The General Committee has some older members and sub-committees that facilitate continuity and ensure that the Club's finances remain secure in the long term as well as generating much-needed income.
