We are delighted to be an official partner to the British Universities Sailing Association.
Through the partnership, we are pleased to be continuing our support of Student and University Sailing throughout the UK.
We will be supporting BUSA in delivering many of their events as well as helping produce content and material to support their members and clubs throughout the UK.
We are really excited to be able to provide member clubs of BUSA preferential access to discounts and services through the kSail Website including the following.
- University Club Accounts with access to discounted and fleet quantity prices on most of the kSail Store products.
- Additional discounts and reductions on parts and spares for University Clubs when hosting their own Team Racing Event.
- Free use of the kSail Team Racing Scheduling and Results Manager with post-event results publishing.
- Support and advice for Club Committees and Bosuns in looking after their fleets and running their events.
BUSA is affiliated to, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and works with, the British Universities and Colleges Sport to deliver BUCS sailing championships.
Hopefully the following will answer some of your questions about how the BUSA/kSail Partnership can benefit your University Sailing Club.
- How do I make sure my club can benefit?
There is a very good chance that your club already has an account with kSail, however due to the changeover of committees from year to year, sometimes new details don't get passed on. Please don't therefore just sign-up for a new account, instead please complete the form under "USC Accounts" above and we can get your account connected up with the right users and ready to go.
- What are the benefits for my Club?
There are a range of benefits for your Club. Most notably will be the discount in many prices that you'll see when you log on from a Club connected account. Additionally, if you are hosting a Team Racing Event you may be able to apply for an additional discount to help you prepare your boats before the event and replace items afterwards.
We are also continuing to freely provide our excel Team Racing Schedules and Results management system to clubs hosting events. We are also enabling you to return your event results for publication on the kSail Results portal on completion of your event.
- How else will kSail be supporting Universities
We will be assisting BUSA in providing helpful content to guide member clubs through the challenges of running and organising university sailing
We will be supporting BUSA deliver some of their events each year.
We will be on-site at some BUSA Events to support not only the event team but with our parts and spares service to support you the sailor too.
We are on-hand to help and provide support to Club Committees in managing their fleets and event planning.
