One of my key roles is working alongside UPSU’s water sports Officer to co-ordinate all of the UPSU water sports clubs. The Yacht Club, Wakeboard Canoe, Sailing and Powerboat Club, Canoe Club and Windsurf Club all run activity sessions for their club members from the Mount Batten Centre. Mount Batten and UPSU have forged a close working relationship, with the ultimate aim of student engagement in water sports through club and recreational opportunities.
