Alternating every two years, since its inception in 1957, teams of university students tour the USA and the UK to compete with their counterparts. In 2015 it is the turn of the BUSA to tour the USA and challenge their US Inter-collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) counterparts to a series of events, ranging over fleet, match and team racing. The tour will take place between 6 September and 4 October 2015.
Applications from student sailors across all UK universities were sought and a great many received. The resulting selection process was highly competitive.

Emily Nagel, BUSA Ladies’ Captain (University of Southampton)
