Stanley hopes to make it a third successive victory for Swansea sailing

Club captain Imogen Stanley hopes to lead her team of sailors to their third successive Varsity victory over Cardiff.

Swansea are now placed in the top eight university sailing teams in the UK following strong performances in Warwick and Liverpool.

Stanley hopes to build on their recent form and believes the team are “raring to go” for Varsity, with most of the team’s preparations all ready for
May 2.

“Varsity is one of the best events of the year for sailing, throughout the season we work closely with our Welsh neighbours,” she said.

“This season we have beaten Cardiff every time we have met them.

“So we have high hopes for winning Varsity for the third time in a row.”

Varsity consists of a best of 10 format, with a sudden death match if the score is 5-5 after the 10 rounds.

The races will take place in Mumbles.
