The University of Plymouth Yacht Club (UPYC) is a club open to all students at Plymouth University no matter what ability or experience. Our mission is to create and promote an environment where friends and team-mates can come together to enjoy yachting, whether its the first time or looking to build upon skills they already have. The club runs 3 recreational sessions a week for its members and each session is just £3!
As a club we offer a huge variety of activities including:
Learn 2 Yacht a course for beginners to learn the basics of yacht sailing.
The club has strong partnerships with local sailing clubs and centres and we are therefore able to offer discounted courses to our members.
We run evening theory sessions for those looking to brush up on a range of skills from knots to navigation.
Fitness sessions to help keep our members active when not on the water.
Weekend trips to local destinations (previously these have included Fowey, Salcombe, Falmouth).
Easter Channel Cruise - a great trip for those looking to improve offshore skills or build their mileage.
Summer Cruise abroad (TBC).
Weekly socials, great for getting to know our members better!
