This website is for anyone with a Cambridge connection who is interested in Cambridge sailing and windsurfing. You may be a prospective, current, or past student or member of the University. Or you may be a current or past member of the Cambridge University Cruising Club (CUCrC).   Use the site to learn about and keep in touch with Cambridge University student and alumni sailing and windsurfing.   Club sailing takes place in boats of 30 feet in length or under.   Yachting at Cambridge, ‘big boat’ stuff in craft over 24 feet in length, is the province of the CU Yacht Club. And we get together in the overlap!
