Anyone can get involved with yachting whether complete beginner or advanced racer.
Our experienced yachters can race on yachts out of Liverpool Yacht Club.
For our beginners we hope to run some courses throughout the year so that you can learn more about the boats and how to sail them.
Participation at the racing is organised by our yachting captain George and has a lot of flexibility.
Beginners courses are currently being arranged, but please let George know if you are interested at the beginning of the year.
Summer Sailing Week
Anyone can come on Summer Sail Week with us – they don’t need to be a UMSC member or even a student at the university – so feel free to bring your friends from uni, friends from home, your entire extended family…
In the past we’ve had several boats of non-sailors come abroad with us, and we try to get as many people to come along as possible.
A week in the sun… on a 50ft yacht… sunbathing and swimming every day in crystal clear waters… top class nights out… great food and cheap booze… need I say more?!
For an idea of what the holiday is like, take a look at the Summer Sail Week or Plain Sailing websites. Over the past four years, UMSC has visited both Greece (Corfu and Athens) and Croatia, and we’re currently setting up a location for Summer 2020…
Our week is booked for mid-June, a couple of weeks after exams have finished which gives you time to fly out early to catch a pre-holiday tan if you’d like. Alternatively, some of us stay out for a few days afterwards, or make the most of being a long way from the UK and interrail back through Europe.
Booking for the holiday opens in November so make sure you keep an eye on the Facebook page for all the details!
