Active Living

Splash clubs sailing at Vikes Active Living


The UVic Sailing Club is a group for like-minded people who have a passion for sailing and much more! We offer sailing lessons, run a competitive racing team, and organize social events for members and their friends. The Sailing Club's race team competes as a full member of the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) throughout the school year. The team attends regattas all over North America, and hosts an annual regatta at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.

The club's sailing lessons are open to all UVic students, faculty, and staff. The Sailing Club also maintains the UVic Sailing Compound in Cadboro/Gyro Park, where the club's boats and equipment are stored.

Learn how to sail through our Lesson Program or cruise around Cadboro Bay in our Recreational Sailing Program! Lessons run 10am-1pm on Sundays. Registration is through the CARSA membership services desk.

All equipment is provided to students.

Join the Sailing Club

To join the sailing club race team or JV team, a $90.00 membership fee per semester can be paid directly online (search sailing) or through CARSA Membership Services desk. Contact the club for specific training times and competitive opportunities.
