SMU Sailing Club
Our club’s motto is “Explore, Dream, Discover”. Here in SMU Sailing, the values we hold dear are team spirit, courage to discover your potential and overcoming your fears by exploring the unknown. We have close bonds with the sailing community in Singapore and are in charge of spearheading annual nationwide regattas. Members who display sincerity and passion will be given the opportunity to participate in international and national sailing competitions where we head overseas as a team and have a good time!
You can expect to find a close-knit family in SMU Sailing, where we hang out outside of CCA to eat, study and have fun regardless of whether you’re a senior or junior. We are addicted to the sun and the sea, constantly looking forward to our 2 training sessions per week - physical training on Wednesdays and water training on Saturdays. There are abundant opportunities to organise events which allows our sailors to develop their leadership potential.

OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION

No. However, you are required to obtain a Level 1 Sailing Certificate during a 3-day course (highly encouraged) that will be arranged by us - normally during the recess week of semester 1 every academic year - in order to participate in competitions.

We take extensive measures to ensure the safety of our members. Every sailor is required to wear a life jacket on board and safety boat is always present during water trainings. We also ensured that sailors with lesser experiences are paired with experienced sailors. Your safety is our top priority!
A close-knitted family that eats, studies and spends time together even outside of cca.
(CCA tradition but subject to covid) We even book study rooms during study week prior to exam period to study together and encourage each other. We host festival parties, alumni networking sessions and family-bonding sessions annually to gather our club members together. As a club, we value the bonds formed and continue to cultivate them even after university life.
