This academic year UPYC is proud to be associated with both local and international companies giving us their continuing support, enabling us to give the members the best service we can.



University of Plymouth Yacht Club is proud to announce the sponsorship of Unity Lets, student letting agents of Plymouth, as our title sponsor for the year as well as the sponsor of our annual UPYC match racing series in March. They have a large portfolio of student and residential properties available, mostly within the PL4 postcode area. Their student properties are predominantly very close to the University of Plymouth and the great day and night time student social life. The range of student accommodation comprises of student rooms, student flats to whole student houses. They have properties from 1 to 13 bedrooms, so something for everyone.

Highwater Sail Loft


We are also proud to be sponsored by Highwater Sails, Plymouth. Highwater Sails offers the club a huge amount of help and expertise with all our sails and boat hardware needs. This relationship is vital to the club continuing to be run in a well organised, effective way as their help allows our boats and sails to be kept in great working order. Highwater Sails has been at the cutting edge of sailmaking in the southwest of England since 2015. Their dedicated team of sailors and professional sailmakers pride themselves on delivering high quality, fast and durable sails to all of our customers. The company has recently become an authorised North Sails sale and repair loft, and now offer the full range of North Sails and loft services to the approved standards of the internationally recognised North Sails brand.


This year the University of Plymouth have an exciting kit sponsorship agreement with nautical clothing giants Helly Hansen. Helly Hansen offers the club a discount on all items of their kit that are selected by the club for their kit. This smart, durable good looking clothing is available for both on and off the water activities. Helly Hansen gear is worn and trusted by professionals on oceans, mountains and work sites.

Plymouth Sailing School


UPYC is excited to continue our partnership with Plymouth Sailing School who offer us great discounts on courses that they run and the yachts we charter for our weekend and longer distance sailing trips. We have made great use of their offers, and have had some amazing adventures, and hope that this year can bring some great sailing trips!

Plymouth Sailing School was set up in 1957 and is one of the UK’s longest established sea schools. They are proud of their reputation for safety conscious fun and professionalism. They work hard to accommodate all of the customer requirements from the complete beginner to the Professional Yachtmaster.



Strengthening ties with the non-student sailing community is important to UPYC and we’re glad to recognise Royal Western Yacht Club as a new friend. RWYC adds, even more, racing, training and social activities to UPYC’s already busy calendar.
