Racing: The Heart of Our Season

Wednesday Evenings and Sundays

Fuel your competitive spirit with our racing events, held on Wednesday evenings and Sundays throughout the season. These races are the cornerstone of our calendar, offering sailors of all skill levels the chance to challenge themselves, hone their skills, and experience the thrill of competition. From the casual to the committed, there's a place for every racer in our waters. Click here to see our Sailing Calendar

  • Wednesday Evening Series: Unwind mid-week with our evening races, where the setting sun provides a stunning backdrop to the competitive spirit. Ideal for sailors looking to dip their toes into racing or seasoned racers wanting a mid-week thrill.
  • Sunday Regattas: Our Sunday races are the highlight for many, with a full day of sailing that tests skill, strategy, and teamwork. Each regatta is a chance to claim victory and celebrate the spirit of sailing.

Social Sailing: The Joy of the Journey

Wednesdays and Weekends

For those who seek the water for peace and camaraderie rather than competition, our social sailing events are a perfect fit. Held on Wednesdays and throughout the weekend, these gatherings are about enjoying the journey, mastering the wind, and making memories with fellow sailing enthusiasts.

  • Wednesdays On the Water: Take a break from the shore's hustle and bustle with a peaceful sail. It's a perfect time for beginners to learn and for seasoned sailors to relax on the water.
  • Fun Sailing: Our weekend sails are the epitome of leisure and exploration. These are ideal opportunities for family outings, socialising with fellow members, and enjoying the beauty of sailing without the pressure of competition.

Special Events: Mark Your Calendars

Throughout the season, our club hosts a variety of special events that bring our community together, both on and off the water. From themed regattas and holiday celebrations to educational workshops and environmental clean-ups, there's always something more to experience.

  • Season Kickoff and Closing Celebrations: Celebrate the start and conclusion of our sailing season with gatherings that welcome and bid farewell to the year's adventures.
  • Educational Workshops: Whether you're looking to improve your navigation skills, learn about boat maintenance, or understand weather patterns, our workshops are designed to enhance your sailing knowledge and safety.
  • Community and Environmental Events: Join hands with fellow members in initiatives that give back to the community and preserve the beauty of our natural sailing environments.
  • Bourne End Week Regatta: UTSC's annual regatta - river racing at its best. This year features the Merlin Rocket River Championships, International OK River Championships and Thames A Rater National Championships.
  • Merlin Rocket Open Meeting 2024: On Saturday, sailors compete for the prestigious 'De May' Vintage Series and Spade Oak Bowl. The excitement continues on Sunday with the Thames Series Allen Challenge Cup, and this year, we're thrilled to introduce the Allen South East Series, running alongside the Thames Series for the first time. Don't miss this spectacular weekend of competitive sailing, where tradition and competition sail together.
