It was a weekend of big winds and frustration as not much sailing took place. The racing was very tight but with Exeter Blue coming out on top.
**Merry Christmas from EUSC!!**
A very merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you have all a great day and Santa was kind to you.
EUSC have had a great first term with a lot of success already in all areas of the club. Team racing have already had a lot of success and have many positive things to take into next term. Yachting and Keelboating have made a lot of progress this term with the first casual yachting trips taking place in September and October. This area of the club will build momentum through next term toward the ultimate goal of retaining BUCS yachting gold. The casual area of the club has gone from strength to strength. The two new casual boats have allowed for more members to take to the water than ever before. Super Saturday and casual racing are just two more very successful editions to the club this term.
Enjoy the rest of the Christmas holidays and have a great New Year.
Enjoy watching Gavin & Stacey (8:30pm)

Breezy day today meant the girls only had two starts which were then abandoned due to umpire interference and breakages! Unfortunately, this left no opportunity for movement in the results. Definitely a huge amount taken away from a challenging weekend and “sure, it was good craic anyway!”
Tough day at the office down in Weymouth at women’s match racing today. Sailing in conditions of high teens and a thunder storm or two, provided a rather exciting baptism of fire to the relatively new team to match racing! However the girls are in good spirits and enjoying the close racing, especially the acrobatics […]

Follow our progress here: http://www.lendycowesweek.co.uk/web/code/php/main_c.php… First day of racing on Saturday brought with it light winds and strong tides, with most of our fleet hitting the shore we managed to get round to course with good speed and finish in fourth – […]

Our two Exeter University Sailing Club / Royal Southern Academy teams have had a fantastic start to the J80 World Championships. The sailing is incredibly competitive with many national and world champions amongst the 48 boats competing. We are racing on Seafire (25th) and Now4 (39th). Both crews have already learnt a vast amount, had […]
This comes straight after a thorough week of training for the J80 Worlds in July. The team had a great first day finishing in 15th place. Once off the water there was plenty of scrutinising and identifying where there is room for improvement ahead of the next day! The J80 fleet is extremely competitive and it […]
What a wonderful year, weEUSC win club of the year at AU dinner! What a wonderful year, we’ll see you all in September! EUSC OUT
Further north than many of us have ever dared venture before, we’ve been met with two very chilly and breezy days of racing. Going into the final day the 1s are sitting in second place and the 2s are in 6th place, looking to hold onto a spot in the top 8 before semis tomorrow. […]
Hope you all had a great weekend of sailing and socialising. Many thanks to all of the helpers and jurers that made it possible and congratulations to Southampton for the win!! See plenty of you at finals in the next few weeks (video to follow up soon)
We were treated to champagne sailing conditions for our first weekend. Plenty of space for next week – as always, it’s completely free, all kit is included and you don’t need any experience at all!
The newly formed 3rds were flighted in bronze but held their own today with victories against a highly competitive fleet. 2s scraped into gold fleet after sailing some tricky teams yesterday. Despite losing their first two races and having to resail one of their wins, the seconds entered into a semi finals against RTYC. Sibling […]
Don as much stash as you can and bring along a nautical accessory or two. For our Fresher members that haven’t experienced one yet, bring an open mind and a working knowledge of 5s. See you all there, here’s one of last year’s photos for a bit of inspiration.
Results from this weekend’s qualifiers are up and it doesn’t look like our 3s have done quite enough to get them through to playoffs. Still plenty of events to look forward to this term, best of luck to all 4 teams in the coming weeks! Provisional results: http://events.ksail.co.uk/…/BUSAQualifie…/WesternResult.html Event Photos (courtesy of Nigel Vick) https://photos.google.com/…/AF1QipOZdTbaJvh92WBmlm7Ovs8kGVY…
Despite light and tricky conditions the 2nd team topped the leaderboard with not a single race lost and the 1s finished just behind, conceding their only race to the 2s in a tightly fought battle that was too close to call from the shore. Congratulations to both teams who have qualified straight through to finals […]

The 1s were unbeaten on Saturday, leading the event overnight and comfortably qualifying for Gold. Our 2s conceded races to strong teams from Imperial and Cardiff but after a tense re-sail, also secured a spot in the top flight. Sunday dawned chilly and light and the 1s remained unbeaten. The 2s first results were mixed […]
1s finished 2nd uni at Oxford Magnum, before 3rds took the win at Swansea Spartan! At Welsh Dragon this weekend our fresher 4s finished an impressive 3rd in bronze in amongst a very competitive fleet. The 3s dominated the top of silver to come away with 2nd place and the 2s fought it out in […]
