‘A smooth sea never made a skilful sailor.’
Who plays? The Scottish Student Sailing programme is a strong and full one, administrated by the Scottish Student Sailing Committee. SSS is an Association of Sailing Clubs in Scottish Universities, and annually elects a Chair to operate the programme on its behalf.
What is there? Three distinct competitive styles make up the SSS year, in the shape of Team Racing, Match Racing and Yachting.
Within the Team Racing discipline, League and Championship competitions operate. Both Scottish Universities Women’s and Mixed Teams are selected, with annual Team Racing fixtures in Prague and Ireland to look forward to for the successful sailors
When does all this happen?
In October, the BUSA Match Racing qualifier decides the Scottish Qualifier to the BUCS MR Championship while acting as the Scottish Universities Championship.
The League takes place over three weekend meetings between October and February, with the league winners being put forward as Scotland’s qualifiers to the British Universities Team Racing Championships. The Championship is a one-off event, held at Easter, with the winners declared Scottish Universities Champions. SSS Yachting takes place in Largs.
The 2017/18 Calendar will be available later in the summer.
