Most University Sailing Clubs (USCs) are members of BUSA, this entitles a university to compete at BUCS-BUSA Championships, provides club affiliation with the RYA, necessary for sailors to compete in any event governed by the Racing Rules of Sailing. Membership entitles registered students of the university to participate in all BUSA activities. See University Sailing Club Membership of BUSA.
USCs are apportioned to "Areas", aimed to ensure balance and proportion in the teams competing in the Team Racing Qualifiers.
There is an Area Chair within the BUSA Committee, elected annually to supports, and liaises with USCs, providing a route for communication with the BUSA Committee. We encourage USCs to provide us with up-to-date information about their Club and activities. If you have information to add, please be in touch with the BUSA Secretary.
Scottish Student Sailing was founded in 2012 from the former Scottish Universities Sailing Association (SUSA), and three distinct competitive styles make up the sailing year, in the shape of Team Racing, Match Racing and Yachting. As well as racing, Scottish Student Sailing also supports training of all levels and beginner activities.
The Scottish Representative on the BUSA Committee, Emily Hill, is responsible for managing the Scottish League weekends that are the qualifyers for the BUCS-BUSA Team Racing Championships..
