Welcome to the Cambridge University sailing and windsurfing website. Although our name might suggest that we are a dedicated 'big boat' club, the Cruising Club is a normal university sailing and windsurfing club with sections organising Team Racing, Windsurfing, and Dinghy Sailing (training, social sailing and fleet racing) for students.

A further section maintains a news blog and organises social events for alumni. Yachting ('big boat' stuff), formerly a section of the Club, is now a separate University club in its own right - the Cambridge University Yacht Club.

Sailors and windsurfers of all abilities are welcome, from people used to competing at the top levels of the sport, through those who are happy with a short sail followed by a trip to the pub, to those who have never set foot on a board before and are looking for training. Cambridge sailing and windsurfing offers a wide variety of opportunities - there will definitely be something for you!

Past members of the Club have gone on to gain Olympic Gold Medals and achieve success at the highest international levels - such as winning the Volvo Ocean Race. The Club was formed on 20th May 1893 and a full history is maintained on the CUCrC Alumni and News website - along with recent and past news items.

If you missed us at the Oct 2017 Freshers Fair or you are coming up to Cambridge in Oct 2018 use this online form to register your interest. If you want to join now, do so at the Club's membership management website.
