Dear members and future members! Welcome to the 2016/2017 academic year!! So much is already going on inside SUWC’s beautiful committee to insure that we all have an amazingly fun and successful year.
For those of you who would like to find out more about our club, what we do and how to become a member, please come and have a chat with us at the Bunfight (also: Fresher’s Fair). This will be happening on Wednesday the 28th of September, inside the main student union building on Hartley campus.

Our sexy beginner reps will take you out on the water and give you a relaxed day’s lesson for just £10.

We’ve even got a complementary BBQ for you guys when you get hungry (after all, windsurfing burns lots of calories 😉

The event takes place at Southampton Sailing Club – we’ll be taxing you guys there from 10:30 on the concourse, outside Stags. Just look out for the SUWC committee shirts!

Come along for one of the days!

Mike Ellis (KEEN) dances in Strictly Southampton

This Thursday your very own SUWC VP has put himself up for public humiliation with the aid of SUBLDS which for those of you who don’t know is the Southampton University Ballroom and Latin Dance Society. The event is called Strictly Southampton, a bunch of the Dance Societies best dancers have tried to teach various club’s committee members a dance which we will be performing for your entertainement. Mike will be dancing the Rumba, tickets are £7.50 and will be on sale at the meeting tonight. An after party will occur in Jesters afterwards with tickets going for £2.

In the words of ex-VP Grog: Watching a dance show £7.50, going to the after party £2, laughing at Mike Ellis make a complete arse of himself PRICELESS!
