Harry,

there are venue guides for loads of places on the Daily Sail, if you are a subscriber. I am assuming you are checking them out for events, not looking for a new club seeing as Largs & Stokes are at opposite ends of the country!

Well, you might be deciding where to go for university.

If I'd thought about it I might have chosen somewhere further south than Edinburgh where I gave myself frostbite team racing on a loch that was half covered in ice thick enough to stand on! I have great photos somewhere of six larks 'moored' alongside the ice with the teams changing boats by skating from the red fleet to the green fleet. brrrrrrr.

assuming you stop wasting time on forums and knuckle down to some hard work (unless you choose something like psychology, in which case, carry on!)

I've heard the trouble with Southampton is that there are so many sailors trying to get involved that they can't cater for them all.  For instance if you haven't already made a name for yourself on the team racing circuit you might as well not bother because all the places are taken by the stars.

As an ex-Southampton uni sailor - it was cr@p, don't bother.

You only sail at a puddle the size of a fish pond at Ringwood, it is surrounded by trees so there is no wind and as Redback said, the sailing is only set up for the in few who all know each other from the existing youth and team racing circuits.

If you are already in the crowd, fine, but very difficult to break into otherwise.

Also, if you think you will take your own boat and sail at a local club on the Solent then you need a car which is great for an overdraft but gives you less beer money.

Strathclyde was better - at least you get to sail at Largs and you can get there on the train very easily.
