Cambridge Blue (actually the Cambridge 2nd team) finished 13th out of 32 entries in the Wilson trophy held at West Kirby 4-6th May 2018. They were top university and beat several fancied alumni and foreign teams such as Wessex Exempt and The Kiwis - as well as a combined BUSA (British Universities) Team. Cambridge Purple, the third Cambridge team, finished 30th - but learned many useful lessons for next year's competitions.
Oxford struck back after a period of recent Cambridge domination to win both the Blues and Seconds Windsurfing Varsity Matches held at Farmoor on 5th May 2018.

The CUCrC marked its 125th Anniversary in style on Saturday 21st April 2018 with a superb day of team racing at Grafham Water followed by an excellent dinner in Darwin College.

Cambridge kept its match racing flag flying at the BUCS / BUSA Match Racing Championships held 6-9 April 2018 at Weymouth and sailed in Elliott 6Ms. The unseeded CUCrC team found the going tough in the field of 18 entrants (and 5 on the waiting list), but much was learned. Conditions were generally light and tricky over the four days, with ISAF seeded Matt Whitfield of Southampton taking the title.
