University of Birmingham Sailing Club
We are a large University Sailing Club with over 60 members made up of 3 competitive teams and a large group of social sailors. We are a very successful club with, on average, 2 out of the 3 teams reaching the peak of the university team racing circuit : BUSA Team Racing Finals. Our club is continually growing - in 2017 we were awarded the UOB Development Club of the Year award for our outstanding achievements throughout the year.
We own 12 Firefly dinghies, used for team racing, and 3 Visions which are used by the RYA courses. We also run 2 events a year: "The Brummie Bender", now on its 18th year and "The Old Joe", a new event aimed at alumni. This year we will also be involved in "The Green Blue Project" which aims to make our club more environmentally friendly.

Previously sponsorship has allowed us to purchase more kit for beginners meaning they can sail all year round. The performance of the team greatly improved, allowing us to compete at more events at a higher standard.
If you were to sponsor us we would be able to run more courses, and keep our boats in better condition. It would allow more members to compete for the university and get more people sailing!
