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 £5!

What we do

As a club we offer a huge variety of activities including:

Training -

  • 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.

Cruising -

  • 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.

  • Offshore passages.

  • Summer Cruise abroad (TBC).

Socials -
