Our Club

No matter what your sailing background has involved, UMSC has something to offer you, and with a membership of over 50 students from virtually every degree split across our 4 sections, we can promise you'll fit right in.


As an extremely sociable club, UMSC hosts a wide selection of socials off the water at least once a week, organised by our social secretary. If you're keen on making new friends at university, sports clubs are the way to go - why not learn to sail at the same time?


The club offers a diverse group of members, but unifies them under one passion: sailing. Whether you are experienced at sea, or have never sailed before, you will always be welcome to join us in sharing this common interest.

University Society

We are one of the many AU societies connected to one of the greatest Universities in the UK: The University of Manchester. As a UoM student or staff member you are invited to join us, allowing you to expand your friendships within a group of like-minded people.

From our Captains



Start Sailing Sec 2019/20

For anyone wanting to learn to sail, join UMSC because not only will you get some great qualifications but you’ll also make a large group of friends… Some of our previous beginners have now gone on to become Yachtmasters in only 3 years!



Dev-Squad Sec 2019/20

D-Squad is great for anyone who can sail but wants to get into racing! It’s a great opportunity to get stuck in. You’ll meet some amazing people, learn how to race to hopefully progress to teams the year after, and have some of the best socials of your life! So contact us if you want to get involved



Team Captain 2019/20

Team racing is a great part of the club that takes you across the country on different competitions. This section of the clubs for experienced sailors who like competition and fun weekends. My favorite part of team racing is using all the rules to help your team mates get into winning combinations.
