We have a fleet of six Fireflies that we sail from Spinnaker Sailing Club for weekly team training. Social sailing happens from Old Portsmouth, Portsmouth Sailing Club, where beginners are welcome.
Simply pay the club membership fee for the year, and then safety boat fuel costs whenever you decide to go out on the water.
More experienced sailors can enjoy intermediate social sessions, take part in the annual frostbite series, or try out for our dinghy team.
Our dinghy team regularly attends events all over the country, including the BUSA Fleet racing nationals and the BUSA team racing qualifiers where we have often qualified for the national BUSA team racing finals.
If you’d rather sail something a bit bigger we charter 36ft - 39ft yachts and regularly sail all over the Solent as part of the yacht team or our social yacht weekends. Every year we also go on our “Summer Sail Week” and sail chartered yachts in the Mediterranean. It’s a great way to travel a bit with like minded people during the summer.
For Yacht Team racing we enter BUSA Yacht Nationals, which is often hosted in the Solent, local to Portsmouth.
Come and join our club, make friends for life, stay active and become part of Team UOP. Our membership lasts until the end of the academic year to cover you while you’re in Portsmouth. You’ll also be invited to any club social events and activities. Full membership includes training, competitions and travel to away fixtures.
Sign up now for only £55 for the rest of the academic year.
