The Student Windsurfing Association

The last weekend of April is all about the epic boat party and inter-university banter that is the BUCS nationals.



When: Friday 30 April - Sunday 2 May

Where: Calshot Activites Centre, Southampton

Why: The culmination of the series to determine which is the best windsurfing University! 3 days of insane partying, windsurfing and inevitably massive dance-offs. Come along if you are competing or not to show your support for your club and have an awesome weekend, its set to go off and will not disapoint!

Theme: SALTYLOCKS. Since nationals is the only core event actually held on the sea the theme is saltylocks. This means anything to do with the sea...i.e under the sea, on the sea, near the sea, things you might find in the sea etc etc. as usual with the nationals its awesome if every uni can come as a different version of the theme so we can differentiate when we need to throw down on the dancefloor. SUWC have shotgunned FISHERMEN, apparently.
