Over the weekend of 25th and 26th February, the RYA & BUSA Ladies’ Team Racing Nationals 2017 took place at Spinnaker Sailing Club, hosted jointly by Spinnaker and by Wessex (Southampton University) Sailing Club.

The event is open to women’s teams, whether current university students or not. They all compete for the RYA Trophy; while university teams, each from a particular university, also compete for the BUSA Trophy.

The Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club (“RNCYC & Friends”) won the RYA Ladies’ Team Racing Nationals, after a hard-fought competition culminating in Oxford University winning the BUSA title. Strong winds prevailed over the entire weekend with racing being run in storm sails throughout.

Fourteen teams entered, nine representing universities (Bristol, Cambridge, Kent, Oxford (x2), Portsmouth, Southampton (x2), Swansea). The others included a brace of teams; SSS & Glasgow Golden Delicious, made up of Scottish University sailors, the latter having an Imperial student joining them. The Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club’s “RNCYC and Friends”, Old Jos (the 2014 winners from Birmingham Uni, now an alumni team) and Sevenoaks School, the only Youth (Under 18) team in the regatta, made up a strong field.
